Leeds are keen to focus their attempts to shore up their attacking options and even spend on a controlling midfielder. As for the 27-year-old Dutch midfielder, he represents a solid option to bring quality in depth and could become a good addition.
Meanwhile, Aston Villa are in the market for top-draw midfielders. Van den Boomen may not come across as one of their primary targets. But Unai Emery might consider him a possible squad option.
