- Timo Werner, who joined Chelsea this summer believes the side has everything it takes to challenge for the Champions League
- Chelsea have already amassed four points from two of their opening Champions League group matches
- The Blues have been pooled in Group E of the European competition alongside Sevilla, Rennes and Krasnodar
Timo Werner has tipped Chelsea to win the Champions League in the next two seasons under the tutelage of Frank Lampard.
The west London side are scheduled to continue their European campaign on Wednesday night, November 4, when they take on French side Rennes at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have picked four points from two of their opening group matches, with their last against Krasnodar ending in a 4-0 emphatic win.
Speaking ahead of the Rennes fixture, Werner, who joined the Blues this season said he hoped the side can go far in this year's edition of the European competition.
Metro UK quoted Werner saying:
"We have a big squad, so many players but also good players, so we have to have the goal to go very far in the competition,"
"We are here to win the Champions League and this year is a good chance. I think we have a good chance this year or next year [to win the Champions League]. I came here to win titles," he added.
The German star further divulged the Stamford Bridge dwellers have a "good chance" of winning the tournament this season citing squad depth as the key factor.
Last term, Chelsea were dumped out of the tourney in the round of 16 following their comprehensive defeat to eventual title winners, Bayern Munich.
Werner will be hoping to help the side reach greater heights this term after his flying start to life in the Premier League.
The star forward has already found the back of the net five times, but admits the intensity of the English top-flight is different from the Bundesliga where he was before his Chelsea transfer.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng also reported that Chelsea have renewed their interest in signing West Ham star DeclanRice for a fee reported to be around £60mllion during the January window, reports from Mirror claims.
The England midfielder has been linked with the west London club during the summer and he is one of Frank Lampard's huge admirers.
The Blues were unable to raise £60m for the Englishman after spending £220m on new players that arrived at Stamford Bridge last summer.
