Manchester United are making a bid for Eintracht Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp. According to German news outlet Sport Bild, United are interested in another Bundesliga-based goalkeeper, and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Kevin Trapp is subject to a bid to sign him.

Manchester United was always going to be looking to sign a goalkeeper following Dean Henderson’s loan move to Nottingham Forest.

Kevin Trapp will be a competent keeper who can compete with David de Gea for a place, and he would fit into Erik ten Hag’s system thanks to his on-the-ball qualities.
Eintracht will then need to be active in the transfer market and find a new goalkeeper that brings Kevin Trapp’s qualities and works immediately. Above all, Eintracht has to judge whether they can afford to let go of the goalkeeper, currently the club’s most important face. While De Gea produced a fault-free performance in United’s win against Liverpool on Monday evening, the club will hope they have added a new keeper who can challenge his place within the side or even take over from him as a first-choice keeper.
