The ex-Germany youth international signed for Frankfurt in 2012 from his childhood club Kaiserslautern after the relegation of the latter, and made 82 appearances for the club.

Trapp, who is considered as one of the most talented young German footballers, has been signed on a five-year contract that runs until 2020, and the deal is believed to be worth around €10 million.

Trapp, who will be presented by the French champions on Monday, signed as a back-up goalkeeper to the first choice Italian keeper Salvatore Sirigu and and 35-year-old French keeper Nicolas Douchez.

Trapp kept five clean sheets in his last season at former club Frankfurt in 22 appearances for the club. Goalkeeper made 11 appearances for the Germany national under-21 football team.

According to reports in France, Trapp will participate in the first pre-season camp of PSG in Thaya, Austria for preparations of the upcoming season. Laurent Blanc’s side will hope to continue their dominance in the league, and will try to compete in the Champions League with the top clubs, a competition in which they have failed to live up to the expectations.
