The Al-Ahly player has impressed manager Gareth Southgate during a training stint on Teesside over the past few days along with team-mate Emad Moteab.
Southgate said: "We have been watching both players closely and feel that Mohamed would be a good addition. So he´s one we might add to the squad. We´re still in talks with him and his club finalising the deal."
