Mohamed Salah is facing the possibility of being rested by Egypt amid ongoing transfer speculation.
Salah has been linked with a move to Al-Ittihad, with the Saudi Pro league club reportedly willing to offer up to £200m for his services.
While Liverpool have rejected previous offers, the transfer window for Al-Ittihad remains open until September 7, giving them more time to pursue the deal.
Salah has been called up for Egypt’s upcoming games against Ethiopia and Tunisia, but there are reports that the national team has decided to rest him amidst the transfer saga.
This means Salah would miss the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia but would join the squad for the friendly against Tunisia on September 12.
