The Serie A giants said: “FC Internazionale Milano has disclosed that Ashley Young has contracted Covid-19 after taking a test yesterday at Appiano Gentile.
“The English football player is now isolating at home.”
Young stayed in Italy during the peak of the pandemic in March and April.
He gave an insight into what life was life in Milan during that time and offered lockdown advice with a lengthy Twitter thread.
And the restrictions meant he could not see his usual barber, therefore allowing his hair to grow out before returning to training in May.
The 39-cap England international has featured three times for Inter so far this season.
He started the wins over Fiorentina and Benevento, grabbing an assist against the latter, before coming off the bench in the 1-1 draw at Lazio.
Inter sit fourth in the Serie A table with Atalanta and rivals AC Milan the two teams on nine points from nine.
