Nikola “NiKo” Kovac is reportedly joining FaZe Clan, according to a report from Jarek “DeKay” Lewis.

This roster move comes in the wake of Phillip “aizy” Aistrup’s departure from FaZe to join North, and occurred after talks with Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom allegedly fell through.

NiKo has been on mousesports since mid-2015, and has risen to become one of the most mechanically-gifted players in the world. His skill surpassed those of his teammates, but due to a large buyout, organizations were unable to negotiate transfers.

FaZe Clan has reportedly met this sum, and will use NiKo to fill the gap left by aizy.

FaZe Clan’s roster is now reported to be:

Finn “karrigan” Andersen

Håvard “rain” Nygaard

Aleksi “allu” Jalli

Fabien “kioShiMa” Fiey

Nikola “NiKo” Kovac

This roster move has not yet been confirmed by FaZe or NiKo.
