Stoke City have been extremely impressive this season with Mark Hughes changing the philosophy and perception of the team.
Now the Potters are known for their devastating front four of Marko Arnautovic, Xherdan Shaqiri, Bojan Krkic and Ibrahim Afellay.
But it would appear that they are now hoping to add some defensive steel to the team.
Ndoye is a battling midfielder with caps for Senegal. He joined Angers from Creteil in the summer and has been integral to their rise up to third in the French top flight. The promoted side also have Thomas, a centre-back who has been with the club since 2013 after a stint in non-league French football.
Both would come reasonably cheap and their wages what not be an issue either and the two players might be real gems if Stoke City do indeed make a move for the player.
