mousesports hold talks for woxic, frozen and karrigan
The European giants are currently undergoing a major overhaul of their squad after failing to qualify for the IEM Katowice Major and are preparing for life without Miikka "suNny" Kemppi, who is being courted by Cloud9, as HLTV.org revealed on Monday evening.
mousesports are looking to build their new team around Robin "ropz" Kool and Chris "chrisJ" de Jong, with the experienced Dutchman set to be brought back into the starting line-up. Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný was initially supposed to remain in the team, but recent developments see the 27-year-old moved to the bench.
As Dexerto reported on Monday, mousesports are interested in signing karrigan, who recently returned to FaZe after a short loan with Envy. The Danish tactician is no stranger to the German organisation, which he represented for over two years across three different spells, in 1.6 and CS:GO, between 2010 and 2014.
In recent days, woxic has emerged as mousesports' primary target to replace oskar in the sniper role. The 20-year-old has been with HellRaisers since August 2017, most notably helping the team to a top-eight finish at the FACEIT Major.
The final piece of the squad that mousesports are looking to assemble is frozen, who was last seen representing NoChance. The 16-year-old's career has stagnated in the last year, but it seems now that he will finally get the chance to prove himself at the highest ever after emerging as one of the most promising young talents in Europe with eXtatus in 2017.
mousesports are expected to make an announcement on the future of the squad in the coming days as the team will compete in the ECS Season 7 regular season, kicking off March 11.
If confirmed, these changes will leave mousesports with the following line-up:
