Should Salah elect to join his countrymen at the tournament, he could miss the start of Liverpool's 2020/21 Premier League campaign, which is set to get underway on 8 August.
Liverpool, however, aspire to stay clear of seeing their pre-season strategies in advance of the 2020-21 project interrupted by the lack of an essential male.
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.
Gharib said: "We can not force Salah to participate with us because Federation Internationale de Football Association regulations do not compel him to participate".
"Out of the three senior players we'll call up, Salah is the only one we're settled on so far because he's simply one of the top three players in the world", Gharib said.
