OG eye flameZ as potential new fifth - Report
The Israeli prospect could soon find himself making the jump to a bigger team.
OG have expressed an interest in signing Endpoint star Shahar "flameZ" Shushan, as first reported by Cybersport.pl and confirmed by HLTV.org. The promising 17-year-old is high on the list of targets drawn up by OG, who are also reportedly interested in Michał "MICHU" Müller.
Both players are still options for the team led by Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen, who are expected to make a decision shortly as the roster lock for the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown draws near.
flameZ has been competing with Endpoint for seven months, helping them qualify for ESL Pro League Season 13 and climb up the world rankings. He came into the spotlight at the start of 2021, when four of the players on the HLTV Top 20 earmarked him as a player to watch, praising not only his skill but communication and approach to the game.
After a one-month competitive break following a group stage exit from ESL Pro League Season 13, OG are expected to debut their new roster at the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown, which will run between April 13 and 18.
