Liverpool are desperate to land a centre-back before Monday’s deadline, and the Reds have reportedly earmarked Issa Diop as a potential option.

Many West Ham United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to react to the rumour, insisting they don’t want to see their player to leave the club this month.

Liverpool’s injury problems at the back have worsened after Joel Matip picked up an ankle injury while playing against Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday.

Fabinho is also missing with a minor muscle injury, while Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez are long-term absentees.

According to reports from The Athletic, the Reds have enquired about the French defender.

The Hammers are not likely to sanction a loan for the £20 million-rated player should the Reds come calling, unless it came with an obligation to buy.

Here are some of the best reactions from West Ham fans on Twitter:

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp suggested after the Spurs game that the Reds will look to sign a defender if there is a quality player available in the market.

The 24-year-old defender has dropped down the pecking order at the club behind Angelo Ogbonna, Craig Dawson and Fabian Balbuena, and is David Moyes’ fourth-choice centre-back at the moment.

He has managed just six games this term and has been told that he can go out on loan. He is a solid defender with Premier League experience and would be a very good signing for the Reds.

West Ham want all of his wages covered as well as a loan fee, and it seems the Hammers fans do not want their player to join Liverpool.
