The goalkeeper has not played for the French club this season but admits that he needs first-team football to play in Russia next summer

Kevin Trapp acknowledges that he may need to leave PSG in search of first-team football as he bids to make Germany's 2018 World Cup squad.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper has largely been first choice at PSG since signing from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2015, but he now finds himself behind Alphonse Areola in the pecking order and has yet to play for the club thus far this season.

Although Trapp played 90 minutes for Germany against France on Tuesday, he realises that something must change if he is to travel to Russia next year with the world champions.

"I have to play [to go to the World Cup] most importantly," he told L'Equipe.

"For now, I have not thought about [the future]. There are only two games left before the announcement of the World Cup list, so yes, I will have to ask myself and think.

"In the meantime, I'm still at PSG and I'm happy. We'll see."

While Unai Emery has so far favoured Areola as PSG remain unbeaten in the current campaign, Trapp is determined to keep working hard and put pressure on the French keeper.

"It's no secret that it's complicated for me," he said. "I always want to play.

"My last match was back in pre-season against Tottenham, but we talk to the coach. It's his decision, you have to accept it.

"I work well every day to be ready. I want to believe that it ends up paying off to be fit and to work. I cannot stop now."
