Kevin Trapp set to join PSG from Frankfurt - report

Kevin Trapp made 22 Bundesliga appearances last season.

Eintracht Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp is expected to undergo a medical on Monday before completing a €9 million move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Trapp, 24, is due to arrive in the French capital, according to Bild, in order to face medical tests before signing a five-year contract with the Ligue 1 champions.

"It is really difficult," Trapp is quoted as saying by Bild with regard to his departure from Frankfurt, where he has flourished since his 2012 arrival from Kaiserslautern.

Frankfurt bosses took the unusual step of travelling to Paris on Friday, rather than PSG coming to see them, as the French club's deputy sporting director, Olivier Letang, had a number of meetings that day.

"The sooner we reach an agreement, the better, because there are still one or two things in the offing," Frankfurt chairman Heribert Bruchhagen said.

Bild claimed that in addition to the transfer fee PSG would also play a friendly against the Bundesliga outfit, most likely at the start of the 2016-17 season.

Should the deal go through it would represent Frankfurt's biggest ever transfer, surpassing the €8.5 million Olympiakos paid for Lajos Detari in 1988.

Trapp is expected to provide PSG No. 1 Salvatore Sirigu with competition after the Italy international had a mediocre 2014-15 season, relegating Nicolas Douchez to third choice.

It will leave Frankfurt in search of a new goalkeeper, and coach Armin Veh, who has returned to the club he left just a year ago, knows it will not be easy to replace Trapp, one of Germany's brightest prospects in the position.

"If Kevin Trapp goes we will sign another goalkeeper. There are many good goalkeepers, but most of them are under contract," Veh told kicker.
