West ham fans have been discussing last week’s links to Stoke City’s Badou Ndiaye, and it’s pretty clear they don’t want the Senegalese international.
According to reports, West Ham could be set to battle Besiktas and Arsenal for the signature of Ndiaye, who was relegated with Stoke this season.
The wiry midfielder was one of the Potters’ best players after signing in January, after spending three seasons impressing in Turkey.
The 27 year-old, who has 13 Senegal caps, could be seen as a replacement for Cheikhou Kouyate, who has taken plenty of flak for his performances this season.
While most fans would agree they need an upgrade on Kouyate, they don’t seem to think Ndiaye is that upgrade.
In 13 Premier League appearances for Stoke, Ndiaye averaged an incredible 4.1 tackles per game, compared to just 2.2 per match from Kouyate this season.
There have been some suggestions that the Hammers could also pursue Ndiaye’s teammate Joe Allen as well, but fans are hoping they aim for bigger and better than the relegated pair this season.
