Borussia Dortmund are reportedly interested in signing Paris St Germain goalkeeper Kevin Trapp in January.
French outlet Le Parisien report that Borussia Dortmund are ready to offer 15 million euros for the German international in January. Former Eintracht Frankfurt goalkeeper Trapp joined the French giants in 2015 for a fee of around 10 million euros. But after being dropped in favor of Alphonse Areola, he now wants to return to Germany.
And Borussia Dortmund are reportedly interested in providing him an opportunity to be the club’s new No. 1 in January. Peter Bosz has been left unimpressed by the performances of Swiss goalkeeper Roman Burki, especially in the Champions League.
But Trapp hasn’t enjoyed the best of times in France and has been found guilty of making some very costly mistakes in games. PSG are in need of money due to their constraints with the financial fair play.
While Trapp wants to be in Germany’s 23-man squad that travels to Russia next year for the World Cup finals. The 27-year old is currently behind Manuel Neuer, Marc-André ter Stegen and Bernd Leno in the pecking order for the World Champions.

However, playing week in, week out for the Black and Yellows might improve his chances of getting on that plane to Russia, especially if Neuer fails to completely recover from his broken leg. The report also says that PSG manager Unai Emery wants a replacement before allowing Trapp to leave.
If the transfer does happen, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for current No. 1 Roman Burki. The Swiss goalkeeper has kept 5 clean sheets in 7 games in the Bundesliga this season, conceding only twice.
