Celtic have made contact with Columbus Crew and asked for permission to speak with Wil Trapp over a move to Scotland.
The defensive midfielder has spent 6 years with his club and feels its time to move on and progress as a player, and Brendan Rodgers has Trapp on his radar.
Trapp also has a Greek passport and will make any move to a European club very simple, many media outlets have reported that newly signed American Celtic player Timothy Weah will play a major role in helping to secure Trapp’s services.
In 2014, then New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry sang Trapp’s praises, saying: “Wil Trapp was outstanding today. I know [Federico] Higuaín usually gets all the [credit], and their striker [Aaron] Schoenfeld will get credit because he scored two goals, but Wil Trapp was the key. Wil Trapp does his job. He brings the ball out for them and it’s difficult to stop.
Trapp has played 177 games for Columbus Crew and has scored 2 goals, so he already has a wealth of experience at the age of just 25.
