UPDATE 11/16: According to Esportmaniacos Pablo "Bloop" Suárez, Martin "Rekkles" Larsson is interested in exploring free agency. While a re-signing with Fnatic is not off the table for the veteran AD Carry, G2 Esports are the expected frontrunners for Rekkles now that G2 has parted ways with Luka "Perkz" Perković.
Cloud9 mid laner Yasin "Nisqy" Dinçer is reportedly on his way to replace Tim "Nemesis" Lipovsek in LEC's Fnatic, according to Esportsmaniacos and Lequipe. According to both outlets, there is a verbal agreement between the parties, which will return Nisqy back to Europe, after two-year tenure with Cloud9.
According to recent reports, letting Nisqy go from Cloud9 is inevitable, as the LCS team is set to sign G2 Esports' Luka "Perkz" Perkovic, whose departure from the LEC champions is all but officially confirmed. Reports hint that Perkz, who was originally a mid laner but role-swapped to ADC after the arrival of Rasmus "Caps" Winther to G2, wants to return to his original role, and Cloud9 is willing to give him this opportunity. WIth arguably the biggest transfer scoop of the season, which is to be made official at the start of the preseason on Nov. 16, Cloud9 will look to go back to winning LCS titles and make deep runs at Worlds.
Nisqy's reported signing to Fnatic should also be good for both parties. Nisqy would be returning to an arguably stronger region and will be giving Fnatic an upgrade over Nemesis. If the rest of Fnatic stays the same, the storied LEC team will have an ironclad roster and a strong mid/jungle duo between Nisqy and Oskar "Selfmade" Boderek.
With G2 losing one of its biggest stars in Perkz, the move could also close the gap in the LEC-defining rivalry between them and Fnatic heading into 2021 Spring.
