Mohamed Salah's agent has reiterated no decision has been taken on whether the Liverpool star will represent Egypt at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Egypt Under-23 boss Shawky Gharib confirmed his intention to select Salah as one of three overage players for the football tournament at the Games, though he did concede he has not yet held talks with the player himself.
Speaking last month, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said "it would not be too cool" if Salah was to travel to Japan and that the call had yet to be made.
That was a message emphasised again by Salah's agent Ramy Abbas Issa on social media, who quote tweeted a report saying the 27-year-old would be selected with the message: "No decision has been made yet."
If Salah was to represent Egypt it would leave Liverpool without its key forward for pre-season and perhaps some of the beginning of the Premier League campaign.
The gold medal match is scheduled to take place on August 8, the same day as the start of the top-flight season in England.
