Report: Osimhen tests negative for Covid-19, set for a return to action

The last few weeks have been tumultuous for the Super Eagles star, but he is now set for a return to competitive action 

Super Eagles Victor Osimhen has tested negative for Covid-19, and as such, he is set to return to Italy soon.

Osimhen has had an uneasy last few weeks- the continuous back and forth between Napoli and the NFF concerning his participation at the African Cup of Nations and also testing positive for Covid-19.

Also, He had to pull out of the AFCON controversially, albeit Super Eagles boss Augustine Eguavoen defended his decision, stating that the former Lille man was suffering from poor health.

Because of his Covid-19 issue, he has had to isolate in Nigeria following Covid-19 protocols. However, the former Under-17 star has cause to smile again, as Napoli announced via their Twitter handle that their 23-year-old talisman man will return to Italy very soon after he tested negative for Covid-19.

Osimhen has not played since he suffered a facial injury in Napoli’s Serie A clash against Inter Milan in November 2020.

But the Super Eagles star could return to action on the 17th of January when Neapolitans travel to Bologna.
