Perkz rumored to be in for a huge $5 million deal to move to NA

Luka “Perkz” Perković, G2 Esports’ star AD Carry, is reportedly exploring options of playing in the NA region. The rumors circulated the web when ESPN reporter Jacob Wolf took to Twitter about the possible moves from G2 Esports management and Perkz himself.

Rumors first circulated towards the end of October of this year with Perkz quickly putting a halt to the then-unfounded claims. The EU AD Carry emphasized that rumors are often found to be untrue. Subsequently, he joked about potentially taking his talents to the NA region. It was rumored that Perkz’ departure from G2 would see the skilled player take up his old Mid Laner mantle.

Now that the rumors about his possible team change have resurfaced, NA fans wait with bated breath. It’s an especially perfect time for NA to receive a new star Mid Laner following the retirement of another EU Mid Lane star, Bjergsen. Sources have allegedly stated that Perkz’ buyout from the G2 roster is just a little under $5 million.

It’s no surprise that teams would be lining up to spend all their money on a player like Perkz. He has earned multiple accolades both in the Mid Lane and as Carry in the bot lane. Perkz has also managed to win his first international tournament in the 2019 Mid-Season Invitational. Chief of his recent successes is the impressive back-to-back stints in the world championships. Perkz and G2 made it to the grand finals in 2019 with a modest 3rd-4th finish in this year’s Worlds.

It would be a crushing blow to G2’s streak of dominance in the EU should they lose Perkz. However, by the same coin, it would be interesting to see just how much he can shake up the LCS playing either as Mid or Carry.
