Andre Schurrle believes Chelsea have a great opportunity to win trophies after Jose Mourinho sealed deals for the perfect players this summer.

Chelsea have spent upwards of £70 million bringing Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa and Filipe Luis so far this summer while Didier Drogba joined on a free transfer. Mourinho later claimed that his transfer business was done for the summer.

'Perfect signings'

However, Schurrle believes Chelsea have already done enough in the transfer market to make sure they are challenging for every major trophy next season. The World Cup winner believes Mourinho could not have signed better players.

Quoted in The Daily Express, Schurrle said: "Cesc Fabregas is one of the best players in the world, when he has the ball he’s so confident.

"When I played with Diego Costa for the first time on Friday it was very good because he’s fast and always looking for a way to goal. Filipe Luis is very strong with a great left foot.

"They are all perfect signings and we are looking forward to the start of the season.

"I want to win titles with this club, I want to win trophies with Chelsea and we have a great opportunity."

Costa addition

Although Fabregas' return to the Premier League is the biggest story, the highest hopes amongst the Stamford Bridge faithful is for his Spain teammate Diego Costa. The striker joined from Atletico Madrid having inspired the team to a shock triumph in La Liga and Chelsea fans are hoping he can translate that form into Premier League success.

If he fails, Chelsea will be left with a massive problem as only Fernando Torres and the injured Didier Drogba are available to replace him. At 36, Drogba won't be able to replicate the form he displayed in his first spell in west London whereas Torres' failures have been widely documented since his record move in 2011.

Mourinho also cited his failure to win a trophy last season on his lack of options up front. Now Mourinho's Chelsea career is in Costa's hands. If he flops and Chelsea don't win a trophy, it is hard to see Roman Abramovich holding his trigger happy finger.

Lampard replacement

Fabregas will also fill the gaping hole left by Frank Lampard, who rejected a contract extension at Chelsea to agree a deal with New York FC. He later agreed to join Manchester City on loan.

The former-Arsenal captain is set to play a key role in the centre of Chelsea's midfield and is likely to provide vital link up play between the defence and attack. Eden Hazard will thrive off his through balls while Fabregas is also expected to become an influential figure in the dressing room.
