Super Eagles and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen has tested positive for coronavirus on his return to Italy, his club confirmed on Friday.
The 21-year-old Nigeria international has been sidelined since last November after dislocating his shoulder while representing Nigeria in the Africa Cup of Nations, returned to his club on Thursday from holiday.
On arrival, the former Lille was subjected to the compulsory Covid-19 PCR test and his Serie A outfit disclosed in a statement that Osimhen returned a positive result.
“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.”
Napoli signed Osimhen from Lille in a club-record fee worth around 80 million euros ($94.6 million) in a five-year deal last summer.
Since signing for the club, Osimhen has scored two goals in six league appearances but has not played since November 8 because of his shoulder injury.
