G2 Esports had a pretty mediocre 2021 season. Despite taking a lot of second and third place, winning at major CS:GO tournaments made them inevitable. In order to turn these top finishes into victories, G2 Esports is said to have begun looking for potential candidates to bolster their CS:GO roster for 2022.
Currently, G2 is in talks with breakout NAVI Junior player, Ilya “m0NESY” Osipov, as discussions are still underway to report the transfer amount is about $600,000 USD along with some additional terms.
While no confirmation regarding the above transfer has been made, another report by 1pv.fr pointing towards G2 showing interest in purchasing Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen from OG.
G2 Esports is reportedly interested in signing Aleksib from OG
G2 Esports just weeks after the PGL Major Stockholm 2021 made the decision to part ways with their CS:GO coach, Damien. “maLeK” Marcel, who has been with the organization since November 2018.
It looks like more changes are likely to come as the team prepares to head into 2022 with a new IGL (in-game leader) and a dedicated AWPer being their top priority at the moment. This pairing seems to fit perfectly with both players that G2 is said to be interested in, m0NESY and Aleksib.
Since m0NESY took Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev’s advice and The report is given stating that NAVI has accepted offers for 16-year-olds from interested organizations, G2 Esports is the first name involved in the move and is still being reported as something currently being worked on. negotiate.
Also, Aleksib now appears to be G2’s reported choice for a new IGL. Unfortunately, he is currently under contract with OG until the end of 2022. So in case G2 really wants to sign him, they should be ready to spend some cash or look elsewhere.
Aleksib may not have enjoyed much success with OG but the Finn is a solid trigger and even has solid potential when it comes to playing for the team. G2 getting him could be a boon for both parties involved.
If GameInside reports are accurate and the actual transfer amount of m0NESY is around US$600,000, with additional terms to the deal it is hard to say how much they would be willing to pay for Aleksib’s acquisition. This is quite a difficult situation for G2 Esports as they may have to make sacrifices.
