French newspapaer L’Equipe reported the news today, and it follows other rumors of Peter Sagan joining the team.

The team is also looking to move up to the WorldTour for 2017, and either of these acquisitions would make it much more competitive at that level.

While the Sagan rumors were downplayed by the team’s general manager Ralph Denk, one of the top German riders coming to the top German team would be a natural move.

The 31-year-old Martin took his first win of the season just last week at the German time trial championships.
