Florian Grillitsch’s future at Ajax is uncertain. The Austrian international joined the club on a free transfer last summer after leaving Hoffenheim. Already, a move away from the club could be on the cards due to a lack of game time at the Johan Cruijff Arena.
According to Sport1, various Bundesliga clubs are closely monitoring the midfielders situation. Both of Grillitsch’s previous clubs, TSG Hoffenheim and Werder Bremen, are said to be interested in re-signing the midfielder. The 27-year-old’s current contract expires this June and a decision is yet to be made on whether his stay will be extended or not.
Grillitsch himself is open to a return to Germany, should Ajax not extend his contract. ‘The most important thing for me is that I’ll be playing regularly from summer onwards. I realise that as a footballer, I’m only happy and satisfied when I’m on the pitch,’ he told Sport1.
Grillitsch has made just 10 Eredivisie appearances this season and was out of action at the start of the year due to injury. Under current head coach John Heitinga, Grillitsch has played eight times in all competitions, appearing in the starting line-up on five occasions. Grillitsch was part of the starting squad that lost to PSV on penalties last Sunday in the KNVB Cup final.
