King Paul Akpan Udoh, an Italian-Nigerian player, has been allegedly tested positive of the deadly coronavirus.
King Paul currently plays as a forward with Pianese, an Italian Serie C side.
The Pianese forward was allegedly diagnosed with the disease on February 27, and he has been quarantined.
The 22-year-old started his career with Reggiana before moving to Juventus in 2011 where he was loaned back for a year.
After progressing through the youth ranks of Juventus, Udoh secured a loan move to Virtus Lanciano, a Serie B side in 2016 with an option to buy at the end of the season.
Coronavirus has spread from China to countries in Europe, the Middle East, the Americas, and Africa.
Italy is the country in Europe with the highest number of reported cases. Some Italian Serie A matches were postponed last weekend as a preventive measure against the spread of the virus.
