A deal rumored to be in the works for quite some time has finally reached a breakthrough phase. Sky Germany's Florian Plettenberg reports that TSG 1899 Hoffenheim are set to pay FC Schalke 04 some €4 million (plus bonuses) to secure the services of veteran striker Marius Bülter. Germany's Kicker Magazine confirms the report and adds that a medical is scheduled for tomorrow.

Kicker does report that the base transfer fee may be closer to €3 million, though it's unclear as to whether the journal is basing this on an earlier report from Plettenberg. In any event, die Königsblauen are set to gain a significant plus for the player they paid some €800,000 to acquire two years ago.

The 30-year-old Bülter played by far the best season of his professional career for the relegated Schalke in the just-completed campaign, netting 11 goals and chipping in four assists. He was also one of the vital performers in Schalke's 2021/22 promotion campaign as well, helping die Knappen reclaim their place in the top flight with 10 goals and 13 assists.
