mousesports have announced via their website that they have signed Aleksi "allu" Jalli.
The Finnish player had been linked with a move to mouz in recent days after playing for them in first online qualifier for G3 and in Team Dignitas' CS:GO Invitational Cup.
Such rumours only gained strength following the disbandment of ENCE eSports' CS:GO team, who missed DreamHack Summer over personal problems with one of their players.
mousesports have now confirmed that they have added Jalli to their roster, with the Finnish star stepping into the shoes of Timo "Spiidi" Richter.

The move will undoubtedly provide more firepower to the team: Jalli sits seventh in our statistics' database on a whopping 1.18 rating.
"After taking our time to see which options we had and trying out some different players we are happy to announce Aleksi “allu” Jalli as our new fifth," said Chris "chrisJ" de Jong.
"I have known him for quite a few years now, being impressed by his skills since the 1.6 era. It is clear he plays at the same or even a higher level in CS:GO, yet his team seemed to be lacking the same motivation or skills that he possesses.
"We will obviously return back to English as our main language in the team, since allu comes from a Finnish team and we spoke mostly German it might take some time for this to fully workout, but we have the confidence that it will.
"Since allu also prefers to play the AWP like myself, we will be switching the main AWP role up depending on the map. We both prefer to AWP on different maps/sides so I’m sure having two AWPs will only be an asset to our team.
"Our first goals will be some nice results in EPS Germany, a good showing on the G3 Gfinity LAN in London and ofcourse qualification for the ESL One tournament in Cologne."
