Leicester, who sold the Nigerian winger in 2018, have lodged a claim for an outstanding £390,000 payment.
Al Nassr made headlines by signing Cristiano Ronaldo last year.
“The relevant bans will be lifted immediately upon the settlement of the debts being confirmed by the creditors concerned,” Fifa said.
