Serie A side, Napoli have officially announced their Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen has now tested negative for coronavirus.

This is indeed a big relief for Osimhen who had first tested positive for coronavirus on New Year’s day on arrival from Nigeria after a short holiday and also returned positive when a fresh round of test was carried out on him last week.

Having been certified okay now, Osimhen is expected to hit the ground running straight as he is expected to join his Napoli teammates in training.

Before testing positive for COVID-19, Osimhen has been out with a shoulder injury since the international duty with Nigeria.

The former LOSC Lille attacker has been out since he suffered a shoulder injury when Nigeria played Sierra Leone and has not played for the Partenopei since he scored the winner against Bologna on November 8, 2020.

The Super Eagles striker since making his record-breaking move from French club Lille to Italy in August has made just eight appearances for Gattuso’s side. He has two goals to his name in the Serie A.
