A lot of West Ham fans are reacting to the latest reports suggesting that centre-back Issa Diop has told the club that he wants to leave in the summer, via TEAMTalk.
The former U21 French International is a key part of West Ham’s defence and, since his arrival in July 2018, he has already played 64 times, per Transfermarkt. Now, it seems like he’s keen to depart – with London rivals Tottenham said to be leading the queue as per the report.
This season, he has managed on average one tackle per game, 1.1 interceptions per game and an impressive 5.3 clearances per game, via WhoScored, proving his importance to the cause.
It will be interesting to see how to club react to his request but, if they want to be a team pushing higher up the Premier League table next season, they surely need to keep their best players and Diop is one of them.
Here’s how fans have reacted to the latest reports:

Can see us cashing in on him I like him but he is inconsistent if the money gets re invested I wouldn’t be too sad to see him go
