Mainz coach Schwarz warns Arsenal off Abdou Diallo

Arsenal have been warned off Mainz defender Abdou Diallo.

The Frenchman is under consideration at Arsenal as manager Arsene Wenger seeks a defensive signing this month.

However, Mainz coach Sandro Schwarz insists Diallo, 21, will not be leaving before next week's transfer deadline.

"I'm really zero-thinking about this subject, I am not afraid that Abdou will leave us again!" he declared. "He's smart enough to know the next step for his development - the decision is made.

"He will not leave out of impatience!"

Mainz snapped up Diallo just last summer from AS Monaco for €5m.
