Liverpool will seemingly have to give approval for Egypt to select Mohamed Salah for next summer's Olympic Games.
At a time when the winger has recently tested positive for coronavirus while on international duty, his future appearances for his country during the pandemic have been left in doubt.
The subject of his participation at the Olympic Games and Africa Cup Of Nations has also been discussed, with both competitions potentially causing disruption at Liverpool.
Speaking to MBC Maser, Gharib said: "We will speak with Liverpool in March. We haven't discussed the issue with the player yet.
"The problem is that the AFCON will be played a few months after the Olympics, but the latter will end and the Premier League will start three days after. But we can't call up Salah unless Liverpool approve."
Salah represented Egypt at London 2012, something which may play in Liverpool's favour if they look to convince their star man to remain on Merseyside.
