Manuel Pellegrini signing Badou Ndiaye and Tom Cairney for West Ham United, would offer them power and skill

The former coach of Manchester City, Chilean Manuel Pellegrini (L), arrives for the draw of the Copa Sudamericana football tournament, in Santiago, on July 12, 2016.

West Ham United are believed to be interested in the pair, as they look for new additions this summer.

Manuel Pellegrini is reportedly eyeing up a double-swoop for Badou Ndiaye and Tom Cairney for West Ham United, which would offer pace and skill to the London club in midfield.

Galsen Foot claim that West Ham are looking to snap up Ndiaye from Stoke City, while the London Evening Standard claim that Fulham’s Cairney is on Pellegrini’s radar.

The pair are very differing players, but they could combine to create a brilliant midfielder partnership at West Ham.

Stoke may have been relegated over the past season, but Ndiaye actually impressed after joining in January.

The Senegal international offers pace and power, and would be an upgrade on Cheikhou Kouyate for Pellegrini’s side.

Cairney, meanwhile, could operate as a controlling presence in the West Ham midfield.

The Scottish international is one of the leading talents in the Championship, and has impressed all campaign.

Cairney would surely force Mark Noble out of the team at the London Stadium, if he was to join.

And the potential of seeing Ndiaye and Cairney working in tandem next season should be an exciting prospect for West Ham fans.
