Christian Pulisic claims Chelsea are targeting both the Premier League and the Champions League this season after spending close to £250million in the summer transfer window.
Frank Lampard bolstered his Blues squad with a number of world-class recruits, including Germany duo Kai Havertz and Timo Werner for a combined £126million.
Ben Chilwell joined in a £50million switch from Leicester, while Hakim Ziyech (£36million) and Edouard Mendy (£22million) completed respective moves from Ajax and Rennes.
The west London club also snapped up Thiago Silva on a free transfer after his departure from Paris St-Germain in August.
They have got off to a mixed start in the Premier League this term, picking up seven points from their opening four matches and occupying seventh place as a result.
But Pulisic, who only made his first appearance of the season in last week’s 4-0 win over Crystal Palace after recovering from a hamstring injury, insists they are aiming to the two biggest honours available.
“Chelsea is a club with a lot of history that always wants to compete and win titles,” the American told CBS Sports.
“Our goal is to finish at the highest standing in the Premier League and win every trophy available, Champions League included.
“We’ve got a great group of guys, we’re going to compete, and we’re hungry to win titles.
“Absolutely. Why not? That’s right where we want to be. I think that’s realistic, and we’re gonna compete hard to get those trophies.”
Pulisic enjoyed a breathtaking debut season at Stamford Bridge after completing a £58million switch from Borussia Dortmund last year.
The 22-year-old bagged 11 goals and 10 assists under Lampard, before hobbling off injured in their FA Cup final defeat against Arsenal.
He added: “We’ve brought in more experienced players this year with some new signings, and I think we also have a great group of young guys so I think it’s a really good mix.

“Last year was more of a transition year where obviously we couldn’t sign any new players, but we still had some of the guys who’d been there.
“What was great about last year is a lot of the young guys got a lot of experience.
“This year there’s definitely a boosted confidence, we’ve got an edge. We’re ready, we want to compete, and we want to win titles.”
