AJAX defender Cristian Chivu remains undecided about whether to leave the Amsterdam ArenA during the summer.
Chivu had been expected to quit the Dutch champions at the campaign's conclusion in order to move to one of Europe's major leagues.
The Champions League quarter finalists are also believed to be prepared to sacrifice the Romanian to balance the books, rather than risk losing one of their homegrown stars.
The stylish stopper, who blotted his copybook with a sending off against title rivals PSV Eindhoven on Sunday, has attracted interest from Italy and Spain, as well as Premiership champions Arsenal.
Both Real Madrid and Milan have intimated they will not launch a raid for Chivu but the Gunners' alleged interest could spark a U-turn in their stance.
But prior to the defeat to PSV, Chivu conceded he has not reached a definite decision on his future and has left the door open to stay with Ajax.
