Diarra is currently on a season long loan from Liverpool and has been a huge success since his arrival at Stade Felix-Bollaert.
"I hope the Lens' coach Francis Gillot will remain at the helm next season," Diarra told L'Equipe.
"If he would leave, let's say it could be a shame.
"I feel much at ease at Lens.
"The club has allowed me to improve, become steady and show myself.
"The group has a great future, but I still have two years on my contract with Liverpool.
"If that great club wants to call me back and above all trust me, it is also attractive."
Diarra has yet to play a game for Liverpool since arriving from Bayern Munich in July 2002.
