Zaniolo’s availability for tomorrow’s league fixture at the Marassi Stadium against Sampdoria is still questionable.
The youngster reportedly indicated muscle fatigue upon his return from international duty with Roberto Mancini’s Italy squad. The 22-year-old took part in Italy’s win over Turkey.
According to Sky Sport, Zaniolo is undergoing a series of physical tests at Trigoria to determine whether he can be called up for the away match.
The club will not force him nor rush him back. All depends on the player’s condition and feeling ahead of a crucial league match.
Jose Mourinho is expected to clarify the situation in this afternoon’s press conference.
