Tottenham forward Richarlison has undergone surgery on his groin, the club said Thursday.
The Brazil international spoke this week about issues in that area of his body.
Tottenham did not say how long Richarlison would be out of action, but that he would immediately start his rehabilitation with the club’s medical staff before “returning to training in the coming weeks.”
Richarlison has struggled for goals this season, despite Spurs’ impressive start to the Premier League campaign. He has only scored twice and is on a seven-game barren run for club and country.
He was an unused substitute for Monday’s 4-1 loss against Chelsea.
