One of the Swedish Counter-Strike: Global Offensive circuit's budding stars in Fredrik "REZ" Sterner has, reportedly, received offers to join both Ninjas in Pyjamas and GODSENT, according
to SlingShot Esports.
The Epsilon organization has, reportedly, set Sterner's buyout at 200,000 USD, which could certainly be considered a steep amount for a player that's been competing actively for only one year's time.
Sterner, who has competed in the Swedish Epsilon Esports roster for roughly 14 months, has received praise for his competitive performances and is widely regarded by certain pro players as the breakout star of 2017. But despite his reputation and individual level of performance, Epsilon have been unable to share the same success.
The team is currently only fielding three permanent players, and were also forced to compete in the recent qualifiers for the European Minor with two stand-ins. The team was unable to impress and were ultimately eliminated by NiP without winning a single map.

The report by SlingShot also mentions that REZ is believed to be leaving Epsilon in the coming weeks, in case the organization and any potential buyers are able to reach an agreement.
