HLTV.org: OG are interested in niko

OG has started negotiations with Heroic to buy out Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen. Though these talks are still in the early stage, things could evaluate quickly as OG needs to form their roster before the start ESL Pro League S13, which kicks off March 8.

The 22-year-old could take the place of Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt, who has been benched earlier due to disagreements with the rest of the team.

niko along with Johannes "b0RUP" Borup have been benched from Heroic's active roster, not a while ago. He has returned to the Danish club last spring and in that time helped win titles at ESL One Cologne 2020 and DreamHack Open Fall 2020, as well as reach the top of HLTV.org weekly ranking.

If HLTV.org's information is confirmed, the European roster will look as follows:

 Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen
 Issa "ISSA" Murad
Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså
 Mateusz "mantuu" Wilczewski
Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen
