Super Eagles Striker Victor Osimhen has tested positive for coronavirus.

His club made this known yesterday, 10 days to the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The club however said Osimhen remains asymptomatic but added that local authorities have ordered that he self-isolate and the check-up will be rescheduled after he has tested negative and his period of isolation ends.

Nigeria had selected Napoli striker, who is still recovering from a serious injury, as part of its 28-man squad for next month’s Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Osimhen looked certain to miss the tournament, which is scheduled to kick off in Cameroon on January 9, after initially being ruled out for three months following surgery on face fractures suffered against Inter Milan in late November.

The 22-year-old striker had already declared himself fit to travel to Cameroon but his Italian club want him to stay away.
