NIP line up bid for Brollan
According to sources, around €600,000 has been offered to fnatic for their teenage star.
Ninjas in Pyjamas is looking to upgrade their roster after a 7-8th place finish at IEM Katowice and ahead of the start of the PGL Major Antwerp qualification cycle, sources tell HLTV.org. The organization has lined up a bid of about €600,000 for Ludvig "Brollan" Brolin, one of Sweden's shining stars.
As a result of the offer, Brollan will not be playing with fnatic in the first Europe RMR open qualifier, which kicks off today. The "Black and Orange" will field academy player Peppe "Peppzor" Borak alongside Iulian "regali" Harjău as they start their path towards Antwerp.
With the signing of Brollan, Ninjas in Pyjamas would secure a much-needed star-power upgrade, alleviating the load put on in-game leader Hampus "hampus" Poser, especially in the absence of blockbuster signing Nicolai "device" Reedtz. The four-time Major winner has been out of action since December, with academy member Love "phzy" Smidebrant filling in for the meantime.
Despite being just 19 years old, Brollan has been a part of fnatic for over three years, winning two notable international titles, securing an MVP award, and placing on the Top 20 players of the year ranking twice. It remains to be seen who Brollan would replace on Ninjas in Pyjamas.
