According to Deichstube, Werder are in 'very good talks' with Schalke about taking the central midfielder on a season-long loan deal which should include an option-to-buy clause.
Bentaleb fell out of favor at Veltins-Arena last season due to disciplinary issues. Since joining Schalke from Tottenham for €19 million in 2017, the 24-year-old has made 97 appearances, scoring 19 goals and making nine assists.
