Late last Wednesday evening, the Express broke an exclusive story claiming that Frank Lampard’s men will go after a £40m deal for the Frenchman, as he’s their prime defensive target following the lifting of their transfer ban.
Some supporters suggested the amount they want the club to receive if he’s off to west London, with one even claiming that it should take a transfer of £100m!
Others said that they wanted money plus a player, with £20m and Ross Barkley and £40m and Reece James being muted, and a straight swap deal, with N’Golo Kante being mentioned.
Below is a list of the best reactive Tweets suggesting the club’s price for Diop…
Barkley plus 20m 👍

Add another 60 and we may consider it but I doubt it, despite Pellegrini getting the worst out of him, David Moyes will go on to get the best out of him and prove to the premier league he is one of the best
