Man Utd look for Kevin Trapp and Yann Sommer in pursuit of ball-playing keeper

Manchester United are considering transfers for Eintracht Frankfurt’s Kevin Trapp and Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Yann Sommer to give Erik ten Hag the option of a ball-playing goalkeeper as they also seek a deal for Antony from Ajax.

The Netherlands manager was heartened by David De Gea’s performance in Monday’s 2-1 win against Liverpool and in particular his willingness to deviate from his line, but has considered the safety net of an alternative choice.

Trapp is particularly keen on the move but Frankfurt wouldn’t sell for less than €10m and would be upset if he had to look through the window for a replacement so late.

After a poor start to the season, Ten Hag called for reinforcements in key areas, with Monday’s win over Liverpool now strengthening his hand as he can point to what’s possible following bold selection decisions. He continues to insist on another striker and a full-back.

United continue to pursue Antony but Ajax have set a huge £75m+ price tag for a player with limited experience. The deal is now entirely dependent on the two clubs agreeing on a price, as virtually everything will be agreed with the Brazil international himself.

Ajax’ own position is weakened by Antony’s willingness to leave, even to the point of training himself.

United, meanwhile, retain an interest in PSV Eindhoven’s Cody Gakpo, but that deal is only seen as likely at this point if Cristiano Ronaldo leaves – something entirely dependent on a buyer being acceptable to the new player. As it stands, only Sporting have shown concrete interest and the Portuguese is reluctant to drop back to the Super Liga at this stage in his career.

There was also interest in Barcelona’s Sergiño Dest but any move could come late in the window. Man Utd look for Kevin Trapp and Yann Sommer in pursuit of ball-playing keeper
