The midfielder is having a fine loan spell at Lens and he claims he is looking for the two clubs to thrash out a permanent deal.
Diarra has progressed to the France international squad and is hoping to continue his career in Ligue 1.
"I have found a well-balanced life here," the 23-year-old told But. "Lens are ambitious and it is due to this club that I have become an international player.
"Perhaps an agreement can be found between Liverpool and Racing. I hope so because it would be sad not to be a part of this adventure."
Diarra joined Liverpool from Bayern Munich in July 2002, but has never had a look-in at Anfield and feels his long term future lies away from Merseyside.
