North and Heroic are in talks to trade Daniel "mertz" Mertz and Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen respectively according to a report by neL.
Neither organization has yet to make a comment on the matter.
North & Heroic in talks for a Niko-mertz swap. Here is my report.https://t.co/L6CZLrzrUV— neL (@neLendirekt) August 3, 2018
North has had a poor 2018 campaign and the signing of Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjaerbye hasn't amounted to much. In recent months, the team benched mertz and brought on Óscar "mixwell" Cañellas as a stand-in in hopes of a moral improvement.
Heroic is in a similar boat when the team lost Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer and Jakob "JUGi" Hansen to OpTic Gaming. The report clarifies that the sources can't specify that it's a one-for-one trade between the two, but both parties are interested.
