G2 Esports is looking to make a big move for their Counter-Strike roster as it hopes to grab FaZe’s Nikola “⁠NiKo⁠” Kovač. This information comes from reports by HLTV & 1pv.fr. According to the articles, negotiations are already underway between the two organizations and a deal between them would most likely require one of the largest transfer fees in Counter-Strike history.

NiKo has been a hot commodity for years but sat comfortably on the FaZe Clan roster since March 2017 when he was signed from mousesports. According to Dot Esports he was transferred for a fee of roughly $500,000.

At the current time there’s no word on who would be making their departure from the G2 lineup although the general consensus is François “⁠AmaNEk⁠” Delaunay is the most likely to go.

This move would pair NiKo with his cousin Nemanja “⁠huNter-⁠” Kovač whom he’d predicted to come a successful player back in 2017. This certainly came to fruition as huNter- has soared to the top of Counter-Strike and continued to perform throughout his time on G2.

While FaZe Clan has been the home of some of the most talented CS:GO players in recent years, it’s never lived up to the hype. In the most recent times FaZe has gone 1-8 in matches since replacing Aurimas “⁠Bymas⁠” Pipiras with Markus “⁠Kjaerbye⁠” Kjærbye.

Do you think NiKo should go? Is G2 the right place? What will FaZe do?
