Victor Osimhen tested positive for coronavirus on his return to Italy from Belgium, but is asymptomatic and has not come in contact with the squad, Napoli said.
On arrival, the former Lille and Royal Charleroi star was subjected to the compulsory Covid-19 PCR test and his Serie A outfit disclosed that Osimhen posted a positive result.
The 21-year-old has been sidelined since last November after dislocating his shoulder while representing Nigeria in the Africa Cup of Nations.
The former Lille player tested positive for Covid-19, on his return from Belgium, where the club had authorised him to continue his convalescence. “Napoli can confirm that Victor Osimhen has tested positive for COVID-19 following his return to Italy,” Napoli said in a statement.
“Osimhen is currently asymptomatic and has not come into contact with the rest of the squad.”
