One of the best Brazilian Valorant players Erick “aspas” Santos is linked with a move away from LOUD to Leviatán, according to a report by 

The report says that aspas has reached a verbal agreement with Leviatán and will compete for the team next year in the Americas Valorant Champions Tour if the deal goes through. Other teams were interested in aspas, including Team Liquid, FURIA, and some Pacific teams, according to the report. 

The Americas VCT league is set to begin at the start of next year.

Aspas completes the team but moves away from LOUD 

Aspas is set to make a major move with Leviatán, and he will likely complete the team if he signs for the roster. 

Aspas will play alongside Francisco “KiNgg” Aravena, Agustin “nzr” Ibarra, Roberto “Mazino” Rivas, and Fabian “Shyy” Usnayo. 

LOUD, however, will have to field a replacement for aspas, which will prove to be a difficult task, considering aspas is one of the best players in the world. It’s been speculated that Ilan “havoc” Eloy could join the team from The Union. 

Aspas had one of the most successful teams in Valorant history with LOUD. He was the star player of the roster and consistently put up impressive numbers, making him one of the best players in the world. 

At Champions, however, LOUD failed to retain the title following a narrow defeat to Evil Geniuses in the lower bracket final, which ended the Brazilian team’s run in the tournament. 

The placement epitomized LOUD’s form this season, with the team looking on top form regionally but failing to perform to the highest standard at international tournaments such as VCT Masters Tokyo. 

Aspas will have the chance to face off against his old team next year in the VCT Americas league.
