Ciro Immobile / S.S. Lazio

Lazio striker Ciro Immobile has finally tested negative for Covid-19, according to a report from Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei earlier today.

The report details how the 30-year-old Italian striker, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until 2025, underwent a test yesterday, his 6th in 10 days, with the results finally returning negative.

This morning Immobile will carry out a fitness exam in Paideia and should everything go well, then he will be available to coach Simone Inzaghi for this weekend’s league clash against newly promoted side Crotone.

Immobile was forced to miss two Champions League matches against Club Brugge and Zenit St. Petersburg, the report continues, as well as a vital league fixture against reigning champions Juventus, frustrating the 30-year-old Italian.

The player has made six appearances across all competitions so far this season, scoring four goals and providing one assist in that time.

Last season, Immobile netted 39 times and provided eight assists as the Biancocelesti finally qualified for the Champions League again.
