Inter Milan team-mate Alessandro Bastoni also tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in the week amid growing fear of rising cases in Serie A.
Bastoni was then joined by Milan Skriniar – a target for Tottenham in the summer transfer window – after the Slovakian Football Association confirmed his positive test on the eve of their victory on penalties against the Republic of Ireland in their Euro 2020 play-off semi-final on Thursday.
A day later, the club confirmed Belgium midfielder Radja Nainggolan, goalkeeper Ionut Radu and Italy midfielder Roberto Gagliardini had also contracted coronavirus.
