Samuel Eto'o has been given until 18:00 hours on Wednesday to make a decision over his prospective transfer to Ajax.
The Cameroonian striker has been linked with clubs across the globe after his contract at Chelsea expired in the summer, after only managing nine goals in his single season with the club.
His agent did mention on Tuesday that a decision regarding where the former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker will move is imminent, but the Amsterdam club have said they will not wait beyond this evening.
" The deadline is 18:00 today," said Marc Overmars, director of football affairs, when pushed on the issue by Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.
Amid reports that Eto'o has received offers from clubs in America, the Middle East and across Europe, it would seem that the statement from the former Chelsea man will force him to make a decision on at least one of his available options.
After a spell in England which probably didn't quite go to plan for Eto'o, it's unclear if he would like to remain in the country to prove himself or collect one last (massive!) paycheque before his retirement.
He infamously fell out with Jose Mourinho after the Portuguese manager was caught questioning the striker's age on hidden camera, after some below par performances from the striker.
The Chelsea manager made no secret of his discontent with his front line last season, which led to Eto'o reportedly being keen to stay in the Premier League in the shape of Liverpool to prove a point.
Where to go
If bookmakers are anything to go by, then news regarding his transfer to the Netherlands will be announced in the next few days.
However, Liverpool have never been far away from rumours when it comes to the seemingly in-demand striker, if their audacious attempt for Radamel Falcao doesn't pay off.
There has been much deliberation on the part of the three time African footballer of the year over where he will go, and it seems that Ajax will not wait much longer before looking at alternative options.
Any move could rest on Liverpool's attempt to bring Falcao to Anfield .
