Bundesliga leaders, Borussia Dortmund have denied that PSG goalkeeper, Kevin Trapp will be signed by the club in January. The 27 year old shotstopper has lost his place in the Ligue 1 side to Alphonse Areola and was rumoured to be wanted by the Signal Iduna Park outfit. Trapp wants regular playing time so as to be able to make it to the World Cup of next summer for Die Mannschaft. Germany are currently blessed with options in that department as the likes of Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Manuel Neuer and Bernd Leno are all ahead of him in the pecking order.
Le Parisien reported earlier that Dortmund are prepared to make a bid of around €10m to sign Trapp, though no concrete offer has been made yet. Current number 1 at Dortmund, Roman Burki had made some high-profile errors in big matches this season, and it is believed that manager, Peter Bosz is not a big fan of the ‘keeper. The manager has been touted to be actively searching for a replacement, though club president, Reinhard Rauball says all talk of Trapp joining the 1997 Champions League winners are unfounded at the moment.
Rauball was quoted according to Sport Bild when asked about speculation on Trapp. He said, “That’s not true. He is not under discussion,” “He’s a class player, a great goalkeeper, no question. He’s also a good guy. He fits into every team “But I’m not saying this will become concrete at any point.”. With the club president acknowledging his qualities and we obviously needing an upgrade on Burki, it won’t be surprising to see Trapp strutting his stuff back in the Bundesliga next season with his soccer shin guard. With the German league to be continued after the International break and www.freebets.org boast of the best betting odds.
Trapp is a goalkeeper known for his agility, exceptional reflexes, shot stopping and ability to command his defence. He joined the Ligue 1 giants in 2015 from Eintracht Frankfurt and had since made 59 league appearances, and winning Ligue 1, Coupe de La Ligue, Coupe de France and Trophees des Champions three times in that time.
