Based on the team's coach Shawky Gharib, Egypt are hopeful to have Liverpool star Mohamed Salah for next summer's Olympics in Tokyo.
Gharib said earlier that he is going to have Salah for his team before the time of Olympics were changed from 2020 to 2021 because of the spread of the coronavirus.
"We have a great player like Salah, and we hope that the negotiations for his inclusion in our team will reach a position that will benefit us," Gharib said at a press conference on Tuesday.
"As a technical body and a football association, of course we have a desire to see Salah in our team in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, because your ambition varies and increases with the quality of your players," he added.
"We have talked so far about including Salah, and we haven't decided yet if we are going to include someone else overage or not."
Salah will give it a good start for Liverpool in the 2020-21 campaign. He could score eight goals in 10 appearances in all games for the Reds.
His penalty against West Ham on Saturday brought a 2-1 win to Liverpool. Also, it put Klopp's side atop the Premier League table.
