The Reds have agreed a £4 million fee for the midfield dynamo with his French club Sedan, although the 25-year-old is not expected to arrive at Anfield until January 2003.
"Even before Liverpool came in for me, if a second division club had tried to sign me, I would have gone because I want to play there so much," said Diao.
Diao had an action-packed match in Senegal's 1-1 draw with Denmark conceding a penalty, scoring the equaliser and then being sent-off ten minutes from time.
Meanwhile, media reports have suggested that Liverpool are tracking left back Paul Konchesky of Charlton as the summer spending continues.
The England Under-21 international is rated in the £5 million bracket by The Addicks and is also a reported target for Newcastle United.
