neL: Nivera could join Team Liquid in Valorant

Vitality's former sixth player and currently benched Nabil "Nivera" Benrlitom is close to joining Team Liquid's lineup in Valorant, according to insider Guillaume "neL" Rathier.

According to the source, negotiations between the parties are in the final stages. It is expected that the official transfer of the 19-year-old Belgian will be announced after the LAN-tournament VCT 2021: Stage 2 Masters - Reykjavík, which will be held with the participation of Liquid from May 24 to 30.

Notably, Nivera will team up with his famous brother Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom on the Liquid team. Also on the European team is Elias "Jamppi" Olkkonen, who is no stranger to the CS:GO community.

Benrlitom Jr. was signed by Vitality as the sixth player in October 2020. On March 12, the French club announced that it was putting him up for transfer because it would not be able to use the expanded roster in the qualifiers for the majors due to Valve penalties.
