Kevin Trapp took the biggest step of his career so far by moving from Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt to French giants Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2015. Having gathered his first experiences of Germany’s top flight for Kaiserslautern, the 26-year-old has now established himself in one of Europe’s most star-studded teams. With his magnificent saves and dependable positional play, Trapp played his way to the top of PSG coach Laurent Blanc’s team sheet soon after his arrival in the French capital.
"Going from Frankfurt to Paris wasn’t just one step, it was two, three or even four," the FIFA U-17 World Cup participant explained. "It’s an extremely large leap to go from a fantastic yet mid-ranking team in Germany to a top club that competes for silverware every year, but everything has worked out brilliantly so far. The level here is extremely high and you have to push yourself to your limits every day."
Trapp’s efforts did not go unnoticed by Germany coach Joachim Low, who called him up to the national squad for the first time in November 2015. Although the 1.89m-tall goalkeeper has yet to win a senior international cap, he has played 11 matches for his country's U-21 side. Trapp will travel with Germany to a major tournament for the first time for Russia 2017.
