France's preeminent sporting publication reports that FC Schalke 04 have accepted FC Nantes' offer for attacking midfielder Florent Mollet.

The deal constitutes a €1 million net transfer win for die Knappen, who only paid €500,000 for the 31-year-old this past summer. L'Equipe reports that the transfer won't be officially confirmed until early next week. Mollet will sign a new contract in Brittany good through 2025.
The cash infusion should prove sufficient enough for S04 chief personnel executive Peter Knäbel to purchase at least one attacker. After the recent injury to lead striker Sebastian Polter, the relegation-threatened side find themselves in need of extra attacking reinforcements.
