Now that the 2018-19 season is complete with a run to the semi-finals of the Champions League still fresh in our minds it's time to start thinking of next season. Ajax will have to play two preliminary rounds to qualify for the Champions League group stage next season so there will be another early start to the training program. The only national competition on the books is the Nations League and Euro qualifiers but those will be over in early June. Here is the current roster of Ajax players and I'll be updating it as transfers are announced and final. Onana and Tagliafico said they are staying another season. Blind and Tadic are not going anywhere, Ziyech is not listed as he was promised a transfer by Overmars. Here is a list by position of the Ajax roster who played at least one match this season, were on loan, or youth players Ajax included on their official Champions League roster with an asterisk. Bande was out injured all season but expected to see first team action. New transfers are in italics. : GK: Onana, Scherpen, Varela (on loan from Benfica and don't know if he will be back), van Leer, Lamprou, Kotarski* Defense: Tagliafico, Blind, de Ligt, Mazraoui, Veltman, Magallan, Schuurs, Perie, Martinez, Kristensen, Sinkgraven, Botman*, Bakboord* MF: Schöne, van de Beek, Marin, Eiting, Ekkelenkamp, Gravenberch, Labyad, de Wit, Lang Forwards: Huntelaar, Dolberg, Traore, Neres, Tadic, Bande, Cerny, Nunnely* Jong Ajax players who may be in the mix: Jurien & Quinen Timber, Kuhn, Danilo Pereira, Bijleveld, Dest A fair amount of talent still remains.
