West Ham United have started to find a little bit of form this season under Manuel Pellegrini as they head into the third international break of the season.
The Hammers, who have had a mixed bag of results, have started to put together a number of good performances after a tough start and have started to climb the Premier League table.
The London Stadium outfit made a number of signings in the summer to try and help them achieve a lot more than they did last season, with the likes of Lukasz Fabianski, Fabian Balbuena, Andriy Yarmolenko and Felipe Anderson all having stood out at points.
However, one man appears to have been one of their best additions for a while, with Issa Diop starring for the Hammers in a number of games this year, and fans were quick to state how important he is for them on Twitter.
And, judging by how things have gone for West Ham this season, you would have to feel that they are absolutely right in their estimations for the Frenchman.
Diop, who has quickly become a favourite at the London Stadium, appears to have picked up a number of admirers from further afield as well.
He has been praised publicly by Jose Mourinho in the past when he put in a dominant display against Manchester United to help the Hammers record a 3-1 victory in September, as per The London Evening Standard.
If the Hammers are to achieve their ambitious aims this season and want to start climbing up the table, then the 21-year-old is going to be an extremely important player for them.
There will undoubtedly be interest in him should he continue to impress, however, West Ham must do everything they can to keep him at the club for as long as possible.
