Ashley Cole believes that Chelsea will be looking for younger players to beef up their squad this summer, as the club aim to take the Barclays Premier League title back from Manchester United next season.
“We just fell short last season, we had a lot of injuries so hopefully if we do bring players in we can strengthen the squad and kick on,” Cole told the official Chelsea website.
“We’ve got so many great players in Chelsea, we should be winning the league two times on the trot, which we didn't.
“I think all teams would love to see fresh faces, but the age thing, it creeps up on players and as you get older you get knocks more and things like that.
“But they're very professional players in Chelsea, and if we can add to that with maybe some younger players I don't see why we can't improve on last season and win the league, the Champions League and win the FA Cup because we've got the players to do it.”
Chelsea will be aiming to win the Champions League next season for the first time, with Roman Abramovich desperate to claim the coveted European trophy. However, Cole insists that the need to claim trophies in general is just as important to the side as winning the top prize in domestic football.
“A lot of players' dreams are to win the Champions League, I have played in two finals, of course we want to win - but we want to win any trophy,” Cole said.
