Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has tested positive for coronavirus, the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) announced on Monday.

The association has said that Elneny is asymptomatic and is in good condition. The midfielder will be taking another test as confirmation, Goal.com reported.

Earlier, Elneny had tested negative on Sunday following Egypt's 1-0 win over Togo. Egypt's star player Mohamed Salah had also tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

As per a report in Goal.com, it was confirmed by Egypt's doctor that Salah was suffering from mild symptoms and the striker would be self-isolation in Egypt until he returned a negative test.

Elneny has been in good form for Arsenal this season and his absence would come as a big blow to manager Mikel Arteta after the international break.
