Rumors: NiKo and m0NESY are close to joining Falcons; Snappi may head new project
G2's stars Nikola "NiKo" Kovač and Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov are ready to join Falcons. Fresh rumors about the Saudi club's new project were shared by streamer and GenOne's owner Sebastien "KRL" Perez, who was previously the first to talk about Vitality's coach Danny "zonic" Sørensen joining Falcons.
According to the information reported, NiKo's cost is too high for G2, and he demands improved contract terms, which makes the transfer acceptable to both parties. At the same time, m0NESY does not want to part ways with his Bosnian teammate and agrees to change the team.
KRL's sources also report that Falcons are interested in having ENCE's IGL Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer lead the roster. Together with NiKo and m0NESY, he will become the new project's core.
The remaining positions in the roster could be taken by Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro and Mohammad "BOROS" Malhas, who are already under contract with Falcons. However, these candidates have not been confirmed yet and may be replaced if the club is able to transfer more suitable players, including Vitality's Emil "Magisk" Reif.
Perez also commented on the rumors about FaZe's Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken. According to him, the Canadian refused offers from both Falcons and Vitality to join Liquid, with whom he successfully competed from 2017 to 2020.
