Club careerEdit

1. FC KaiserslauternEdit

Born in Merzig, Saarland, Trapp started his professional career with 1. FC Kaiserslautern, making his first appearance on 9 August 2008 in the 2008–09 DFB-Pokal round 1 against FC Carl Zeiss Jena.

On 12 March 2011, with regular goalkeeper Tobias Sippel sidelined with influenza, he made his Bundesliga debut in a 2–1 home win over SC Freiburg.[3] Trapp played all eight remaining fixtures of the season.

Eintracht FrankfurtEdit

In 2012, he left relegated Kaiserslautern and joined promoted Eintracht Frankfurt on a four-year contract for a fee of €1.5 million.[4]

His team had a good start to his first season, sitting in third place by November, and he received plaudits for his performances against leaders Bayern Munich despite losing 2–0.[5] His campaign ended prematurely in March 2013, due to a hand injury while with the national under-21 team.[6]

By finishing sixth, Frankfurt qualified for the UEFA Europa League, and reached the last 32, where they lost on away goals to FC Porto after a 5–5 aggregate draw.[7]

Paris Saint-GermainEdit

On 8 July 2015,[8] Trapp signed a five-year deal with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain for a fee of around €10 million, and was assigned the number 16 jersey.[9] He made his debut on 1 August in the 2015 Trophée des Champions in Montreal, keeping a clean sheet in a 2–0 win over Lyon.[10]

During the 2015–16 season, he overtook Salvatore Sirigu as PSG's first choice goalkeeper in the club's Ligue 1 and UEFA Champions League matches, while the Italian played in the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue, as the club won a domestic quadruple.[11]

Trapp was in goal as PSG won the 2016 Trophée des Champions in Austria, a 4–1 win on 6 August against Lyon again.[12] In September 2016, he was dropped for youngster Alphonse Areola.[13]

On 8 May 2018, he played in 2018 Coupe de France Final as PSG won 2–0 against Les Herbiers to clinch the trophy.[14]

Return to Eintracht FrankfurtEdit

On 31 August 2018, Trapp returned to Eintracht Frankfurt on loan for the 2018–19 season.[15]

After a successful loan spell, Trapp re-signed with Eintracht on 7 August 2019 on a five-year deal worth €7 million.[16]

Trapp made his international debut on 6 June 2017 in a 1–1 friendly draw away to Denmark, playing the full 90 minutes.[18] He was selected for the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia later that month, which his country won, but he did not play any match.[19]
