Reaction Intermediates and Mechanisms

I have a problem that says complete the following reaction, the comple reaction and the net ionic reacation or if no reaction occurs. I have no idea where to even begin.

FeSo4 + NaCl ---> ????

Solution Preview

The first step is to see if the original compounds are soluble.
most sulfates are, so ferrous sulfates dissolves into an iron cation and a sulfate anion.

The sulphate ion SO4 has a charge of -2
Therefore the iron cation has a charge ...

Solution Summary

The reaction mechanism and intermediates for FeSo4 + NaCl ---> are found.
