Sassuolo coach Roberto De Zerbi might have to cope without several key players against Inter at San Siro tomorrow.
The Neroverdi decided to leave out Manuel Locatelli and Gian Marco Ferrari from the 2-2 draw with Roma due to the coronavirus outbreak in the Italy squad.
With the cluster of COVID-19 cases emerging after the international break, Sassuolo decided to protect their own squad.
Ayhan has tested positive for coronavirus and will miss the match against the Nerazzurri, who are already without injured Filippo Romagna, Mehdi Bourabia, Domenico Berardi and Francesco Caputo.
Il Corriere dello Sport reports 36-year-old Francesco Magnanelli could play in the middle, with Mert Muldur, Locatelli and Ferrari still uncertain.
Lukas Haraslin could reportedly start over Jeremie Boga in attack, with 37-year-old Federico Peluso a possible choice in defence.
Probable line-up against Inter:Consigli; Toljan, Chiriches, Peluso, Rogerio; Magnanelli, Lopez; Traore, Djuricic, Haraslin; Raspadori
