Gen.G Esports is targeting 100 Thieves rifler Jay "Liazz" Tregillgas as an addition to its active CS:GO roster, according to multiple sources close to the situation. Liazz would fill one of the two open roster spots that remain following the transition to Valorant by Damian "daps" Steele and Sam "s0m" Oh.

Liazz had been a member of the 100 Thieves core for about two years, originally joining Renegades from ORDER in late 2018. He helped them reach the playoffs of two consecutive Major tournaments in 2019 with Renegades before making the transition to 100 Thieves. Due to 100 Thieves exiting professional CS:GO for a second time, multiple members of the roster are going their separate ways.

Already announced publicly is the transfer of Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad to Apeks, a move first reported by DBLTAP. Yet to be announced is the transfer of Justin "jks" Savage, who is expected to join Complexity in the coming days. Liazz joining Gen.G would leave only Aaron "AZR" Ward and Sean "Gratisfaction" Kaiwai under contract with 100 Thieves.

Gen.G entered CS:GO late last year with the additions of daps, Timothy "autimatic" Ta, and Kenneth "koosta" Suen. They would later add s0m and Indonesian superstar Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand. Multiple sources have indicated that the fifth member of their new lineup is currently being finalized, similarly to Liazz.

Representatives from Gen.G declined comment.
