The young Denmark starlet has explained he does not know where his future lies and is weighing up his options ahead of proposed contract talks in the Dutch capital.
The midfielder has been linked with a number of European heavyweights since bursting onto the scene in the Dutch domestic league, and the 20-year-old explained that despite the club wanting him to sign a new contract, he is exploring all avenues that are available to him.
"I feel good at Ajax and the club want to make a new deal," he told Sporten.dk. "But sometimes I've got the feeling that I'm ready for the next step in my career. It's not the case that I won't sign a new deal for sure, but I'm looking at all the options."
The Denmark international's contract runs until the summer of 2014, but the club's technical director Marc Overmars has revealed that the Amsterdam ArenA outfit wants to discuss a new deal at the start of next year.
"We would like Christian to sign a new contract, but he still does not know what he wants," he explained to Sporten.dk. "Conversations with him and his agent have taken place and we will see what happens after December."
Former Barcelona winger Overmars also admitted the club has had no contact with other sides regarding the sale of the prodigious talent but has vowed to help the youngster make the correct decision for his career.
"At this moment, we have not heard from other clubs," he said. "It is Christian's choice in any case and it is important that he makes the right choice. Together with Ajax we will make sure he is fine."
