The Romanian defender has been out of action since picking up a hamstring injury against NEC Nijmegen in early April but turned out for the reserves in their recent clash with Racing Genk.
The injury seemed none too serious but his recovery took longer that expected.
However, Chivu is now hoping to be fit to face Feyenoord in a game that could decide who enters the Champions League.
Ajax have had a consistent run of form in recent weeks, coinciding with Feyenoord`s alarming slump, and the Amsterdam outfit are now breathing down the necks of their Rotterdam rivals.
Second-placed Feyenoord are currently four points ahead of Ajax, with Roda JC sandwiched between the two, but Co Adriaanse's side have a game in hand.
