Schalke 04 is still busy on the transfer market. On Wednesday, the “Königsblauen” signed two players at the same time.
After settling the question of the coach, c club Schalke 04 is pushing ahead with its squad planning. The promoted team announced two transfers on Wednesday. Left winger Tobias Mohr joins the club from 1. FC Heidenheim, while attacking player Florent Mollet moves from French first division club HSC Montpellier.
The 26-year-old Mohr scored eight goals in the past second division season and has a contract at Schalke until 2025. The club did not give any details about the transfer modalities.
Mollet is looking forward to the “Schalke 04 challenge″.
“It is no secret that we have known Tobias for a long time, have been watching him for a long time and have been fighting for him,” said S04 sporting director Rouven Schröder: “Tobi convinces with a really good left foot, with which he can create danger at any time with goals and his own finishes. In addition, he brings the right speed to create the necessary space for himself.”
Mollet, an attacking midfielder, made 35 appearances in the French league last season and comes to Gelsenkirchen with experience of over 300 professional appearances in France. “I am really looking forward to the challenge of Schalke 04 and the Bundesliga. I will do everything to play a successful season with the team and to stay in the league,” said the 30-year-old.
Mollet will also receive a three-year contract, and the club did not disclose any further contract details for him either. “In order to survive in the Bundesliga, we need players in our ranks who can give the team experience, stability and the necessary cleverness. Florent is just such a player,” said sport director Schröder.
