Report: Astralis are interested in signing MASONIC player

Astralis are considering acquiring MASONIC player Christian "Buzz" Andersen, reports, citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter.

According to journalists, Astralis have already held negotiations with Buzz, which did not, however, come to fruition. It is reported that at present the dialogue between the parties is ceased.

The media report also highlights that Buzz is not the only esports athlete Astralis are looking into as a potential addition to their roster. Earlier, it came to light that the organization was also interested in Victor "Staehr" Staehr from Sprout.

The Danish club is now actively looking for a fifth player, the signing of whom would complete the rebuilding phase that began in October. Meanwhile, Astralis' academy team member, Mikkel "MistR" Thomsen, has been standing in for the main squad for the past two months.

Astralis' next tournament will be Elisa Masters Espoo 2022, which is scheduled for November 16-20. The organization has already announced the lineup for the upcoming competition, revealing that two stand-ins will be used.
