The most important transfer of a player between teams in the LEC in recent times has just been confirmed. A few minutes ago, G2 Esports has officially announced that Martin ‘Rekkles‘ Larsson will be playing with them for the next season.
The Swedish bot laner joins the ninjas to cover the empty spot left by Luka ‘Perkz‘ Perkovic after the former captain crossed the Atlantic Ocean to join Cloud9.

Some days ago, the rumors about this astonishing transfer started running through the community, after the Spanish Esports Website ‘Esportmaniacos‘ and Jacob Wolf gave us the first hints and pieces of information.
After many doubts and other conspiracies, the European team finally confirmed one of the most important acquisitions ever made in the region.
With this movement, Rekkles reunites with his former teammate in Fnatic, Rasmus ‘Caps‘ Winther, and forms a duo in the bot lane with
Mihael ‘Mikyx‘ Mehle, a Support that is quite used to have different AD Carries as partners, especially after this year 2020, when both Caps and Perkz have played with him in the bot lane.
The message from G2 Esports and Rekkles is very clear: win Worlds.
There is no doubt that this roster, with Wunder, Jankos, Caps, Rekkles, and Mikyx, is a top tier roster, able to challenge any other team from any other region, but we will have to wait a little bit to see how the Swedish player develops in this new environment, after spending a lifetime in Fnatic.
