Achraf Hakimi of Inter Milan has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the Italian football club said Wednesday.

“Achraf Hakimi has tested positive in the latest round of UEFA checks (required by hygiene protocols) undertaken ahead of tonight’s game against Borussia Monchengladbach,” Inter said in a statement.

Hakimi, 21, is “totally asymptomatic and will now follow the procedure set out by the health protocol,” it added.

Inter signed the Moroccan from Real Madrid in Spain last month to a deal that will keep him in Giuseppe Meazza Stadium until 2025.

In addition to Real Madrid, he previously played for Borussia Dortmund in Germany and won the 2018 UEFA Champions League title as a member with Real Madrid.

Separately, he played in the 2018 FIFA World Cup for his native Morocco.

Hakimi scored one goal and produced two assists in four Italian Serie A appearances this season for Inter.
