Ajax wowed every neutral in this season’s Champions League with the Dutch champions knocking out Real Madrid and Juventus before exiting the competition in the semifinal.

Due to their attractive brand of football, Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag is reportedly being considered to replace Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri.

The 49 year old has also been linked with Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

While conceding he is flattered to be linked with a club like Chelsea, Ten Hag insists he has no intention of leaving Ajax.

“It’s an honour to be linked with big clubs like Barcelona, Bayern and Chelsea but I have a contract with Ajax and I am happy here,” Ten Hag said, according to Standard Sport.

“There are no problems for me.

“I am happy and I’m planning my future here, I am not thinking about leaving.”

Ten Hag has enjoyed a successful first full season at the Johan Cruyff Arena after taking over in December 2017.

He has led Ajax to a KNVB Cup triumph  earlier this month and the former Utrecht manager is on the brink of sealing the Eredivisie title unless Ajax suffer a calamitous 14-goal swing against De Graafschap on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is reportedly considering sacking Maurizio Sarri after the Europa League against Arsenal on May 29 and replace the Italian with Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.
