neL: Nivera will join Vitality
Vitality will announce signing Heretics player Nabil "Nivera" Benrlitom in the near future. This has been announced by insider and journalist of the portal 1pv.fr Guillaume "neL" Canelo.
According to the source, the two organizations have already reached an agreement on this transfer. The player was chosen by coach Rémy "XTQZZZ" Quoniam and members of the current Vitality Roster.
Nivera has been playing for Heretics since March 2020. Since then, the best result of his team was participating in the group stage at ESL One Cologne 2020, as well as sixth place in the first European RMR tournament ESL One Road to Rio.
The 19-year-old Belgian is a versatile player who can act as both an ordinary shooter and sniper. Interestingly, he is the younger brother of the well-known in the past player Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom.
Recall that the expansion of Vitality became known on September 24. It was reported that the short list of potential newcomers, in addition to Nivera, includes Ali "hAdji" Heinuss, Brian "Maka" Kanda and Nicholas "Keoz" Juse, and the contract will be signed with the one whom they will be able to buy out on the most favorable terms.
At the moment, only Astralis is performing in the extended squad among the tier 1 teams. Earlier plans to add a sixth player have announced representatives of FURIA and Cloud9.
