Hertha Berlin identify Kevin Trapp for transfer

Kicker report that Hertha Berlin are targeting Eintracht Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp after Gregor Kobel turned down the Berlin club.

Kobel is likely to join Bundesliga returnees VfB Stuttgart, where he’s spent the past year on loan from Hoffenheim, and with their search for a new No. 1 ongoing, Hertha have identified Trapp.

Speaking about interest in the German stopper, Eintracht sporting director Fredi Bobic said: “We know that players like Kevin are always in demand.”

With four years remaining on his deal at Eintracht, Trapp would cost Hertha a substantial fee, with SGE looking to recoup the €7m they paid for him in 2019 and with bosses knowing of Lars Windhorst’s investment at Hertha.
