HLTV.org: w0nderful to replace s1mple in NAVI

Ukrainian organization NAVI is close to finalizing the deal to sign AWPer Ihor "w0nderful" Zhdanov, as reported by HLTV.org. If the transfer happens, he will replace Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev.

Currently, the Black-and-Yellow are negotiating the contract of Zhdanov, who is an active Sprout player. In turn, Kostyliev's future remains unknown.

w0nderful joined Sprout from Team Spirit last summer. Together with the team, the Ukrainian sniper won European Pro League Season 10.

The nearest tournament for NAVI is BLAST Premier Fall Final 2023. Notably, s1mple previously said on his stream that he was not sure whether he would participate in the upcoming event with his team.

NAVI's suggested lineup looks as follows:

Ihor "w0nderful" Zhdanov
 Valeriy "⁠b1t⁠" Vakhovskiy
 Justinas "jL" Lekavicius
 Mihai "iM⁠" Ivan
 Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen

 Andrey "⁠B1ad3⁠" Gorodenskiy (coach)
