Trapp had recently emerged as the top candidate to replace Marc-Andre Ter Stegen at Borussia Monchengladbach as he reportedly nears a move to Barcelona to take over from Victor Valdes.

And according to reports in his native Germany even Schalke are said to be keeping tabs on his situation with his contract at Frankfurt set to expire in 2016.

It is believed that a release clause in his contract will allow him to leave in 2015, and the 23-year-old is making no big decisions on his future just yet.

“I cannot promise, of course, that I will never change”, he told Bild.

“Only, at the moment, there is no reason to leave.”

However, Juventus are said to be keen on stumping the opposition to his signature as they seek an eventual replacement for golden oldie Gianluigi Buffon, whose injury problems have been getting the better of him in recent years.

But Wenger will make a move of his own as he is also set to lose Lukasz Fabianksi at the end of the season.
