Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he has received no contact over Egypt's decision to take Mohamed Salah to the Olympics later this year.

Salah would likely miss the start of next season were he to compete at the Summer Games in Tokyo, but Klopp says no final decision has been made despite Egypt outlining their intention to pick the 27-year-old.

The Liverpool boss said: "Do I want to lose a player in pre-season? Of course not. That's clear. But we have to consider different things. I will speak with Mo and all that stuff," he added.

"We are completely clear about what we want, but we need more information: how will it look, when will the preparation start, all that stuff, and nobody has really contacted us so far, it's just in the media.

"It's difficult to get in contact with me using the newspapers over there because most of the things I don't read but Matt (McCann, head of press) informs me.

"No decision yet, but we will see."
