Mainz defender Abdou Diallo is now quasi-certain to leave the Bundesliga side with which he has shared just a single season with this summer.
After widely-reported meetings with Dortmund yesterday, the French youth international captain left BVB without making a deal.
As L’Équipe report, the player is now due to visit Lyon’s facilities before making a decision.
Napoli and Arsenal have been in the background during these developments, but it seems unlikely that they will be making concrete efforts to sign the Frenchman.
Mainz are resigned to losing the player in a deal with either Lyon or Dortmund that is set to be worth close to €25m.
