Report: Crystal Palace make approach for Paris Saint-Germain star Kevin Trapp

By | December 3, 2017

Crystal Palace are keen to sign Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Kevin Trapp, report The Sun.

The report states Palace have already made an approach for the 27-year-old, with a view to a January move.

Palace are hoping a loan deal can be struck for the goalkeeper, who has been out of favour this season.

Trapp has only made one Ligue 1 start, last week in a 2-0 victory over Troyes.

Last season he made 24 Ligue 1 starts, and played a key role in their 2015/16 title win.

Trapp is a German international and although Manuel Neuer has the number one spot sewn up, he will want to secure a World Cup place next summer, and this will likely require regular football.

Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey was injured in the warm up against West Brom yesterday due to a back spasm, with veteran Julian Speroni taking his place.

The Eagles were left without a substitute goalkeeper for the fixture, in which they went onto keep a clean sheet as they drew 0-0.

Trapp could be an upgrade on both Speroni and Hennessey, and if he can be brought in on loan, Palace have very little to lose.
