The talented Australian goalkeeper has established himself at the Amsterdam ArenA this term, but is now free to talk to other clubs as his contract expires in the summer.
Ajax coach Ronald Koeman would love to keep the Australian at the ArenA, having offered the 25-year-old a two-year deal, but could lose out to a club in Spain.
Didulica said: "I'm out of contract in July and, as of January 1, I am free to sign with any club in the world.
"Ajax have already offered me a new two-year contract and I'm flattered, but I told them I want to concentrate on playing and I'm leaving negotiations to my manager.
"I've always loved Spanish football and I think they've got the best league in the world. It would be like playing Champions League every week."
Didulica has not closed the door on his Ajax, career, as he added to the Herald Sun: "I do want to stay and I love Ajax because they've got me to where I am now in three-and-a-bit years.
"They've looked after me in every sense of the word and it would be a shame to leave, but I have to keep my options open."
The keeper appears to have a positive relationship with Koeman, as he added: "Whenever I've been fully fit, Ron Koeman has shown confidence in me and picked me. I consider myself established in his eyes.
"Every time I've played, I've done the job for him. I've kept more clean sheets than anybody at Ajax."
Didulica is competing with the likes of Bogdan Lobont and Maarten Stekelenburg, but has also been hampered by a number of niggling injuries this term.
His abilities have caught the eyes of a glut of teams on the continent, and is likely to field a number of offers before the summer.
