Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita has been included in Guinea's provisional Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) squad as he continues his recovery from a thigh issue.
Guinea disputed the diagnosis at the time and their hopes of taking him to Egypt were given a boost when Jurgen Klopp revealed this week that the former RB Leipzig man is ahead of schedule.
The Champions League final on June 1 is almost certain to come too soon for Keita but he was included in Paul Put's initial 25-man AFCON squad on Saturday.
Guinea take on Madagascar in their Group B opener on June 22 before matches against Nigeria and Burundi.
Borussia Monchengladbach forward Ibrahima Traore and Napoli defensive midfielder Amadou Diawara are among the players at ex-Kenya coach Put's disposal.
