Steven “Hans Sama” Liv, is set to make his return to Europe in a G2 Esports jersey.

The 23-year-old French bot laner is a free agent after spending a year with Team Liquid in LCS. He had made to move after a great performance in Worlds 2021, hoping to create a superteam which unfortunately failed. After TL failed to qualify for this year’s World Championship, Hans Sama was released from the roster and he announced his plans to come back to Europe.

Most fans expected him to join the popular French organization, Karmine Corp, especially after the rumors about KC joining LEC. Unfortunately for KC, their possible deal with Astralis fell through so they won’t be in LEC this year. And now a new report surfaced from the Upcomer’s Brieuc “LEC Wooloo” Seeger, saying Hans Sama is close to signing with G2 for the 2023 LEC season. Also according to Wooloo, Hans Sama had many options in front of him including MAD, SK, BDS and KC. But his eventual decision was among Vitality, Fnatic and G2 Esports.

On the G2 side, they were already looking to make some changes. Reports of them releasing Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski and Victor “Flakked” Lirola Tortosa were out shortly after their disappointing exit from Worlds 2022, with Jankos later confirming his departure from the org after five successful years.
