Defender Achraf Hakimi has become the seventh Inter Milan player to test positive for COVID-19 and will miss the Champions League match at home to Borussia Moenchengladbach later on Wednesday, the Serie A club said in a statement.

"The Inter full-back is totally asymptomatic and will now follow the procedure set out by the health protocol," said the club. Inter signed the 21-year-old Morocco international from Real Madrid earlier this year.

Roberto Gagliardini, Radja Nainggolan, Alessandro Bastoni, Milan Skriniar, Ashley Young and Ionut Radu have also tested positive.
