It is understood that Osimhen was returning from Lagos to Naples when he was tested for coronavirus and returned positive.

Since dislocating his shoulder in November 2020 while in action for Nigeria in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against Sierra Leone, Osimhen has been out of action for club and country.

Before now, a handful of Nigerian players had at different times tested positive for coronavirus but has since recovered and doing their thing for their respective clubs.

Anthony Okpotu, Paul Onuachu among others are some of the Nigerian players to have previously tested positive for COVID-19.
