Milan: Inter Milan defender Achraf Hakimi on Saturday said he was ready to return to action after two negative tests for coronavirus .

"I'm back," Hakimi wrote on Twitter.

The Moroccan international missed Inter Milan's Champions League 2-2 draw against Borussia Moenchengladbach in midweek after testing positive hours before kick-off.

The 21-year-old, who was asymptomatic, on Friday returned a first negative test and had a second test immediately after, Inter Milan said.

Antonio Conte's side are hopeful he will be authorised to join his teammates for Saturday's Serie A match at Genoa.

Inter Milan are sixth in the table, five points behind leaders AC Milan, who won last weekend's derby 2-1.

Hakimi joined Inter from Real Madrid in the close-season after a successful two-year loan at Borussia Dortmund.
