Everton new boy Nikica Jelavic is looking to hit the ground running in the Premier League and help fire the Toffees into Europe.
The Croatia international has arrived at Goodison Park with a blossoming reputation, with his goalscoring exploits in Scotland with Rangers showcasing his undoubted ability.
Everton dug deep to ensure that it was they who secured his signature during the January transfer window, with a £5.5million fee said to have changed hands.
Jelavic is now looking to reward the faith shown in him by David Moyes by adding a cutting edge to Everton's efforts in the final third of the field.
He saw them clamber into 10th spot in the Premier League with a 1-0 victory over table-topping Manchester City on Tuesday, and the 26-year-old sees no reason why the Toffees cannot keep on climbing.
"Why not Europe this season? We have a team capable of getting into Europe and my big hope is that we can do it," Jelavic told the Daily Star.
"From my point of view I hope that my goals can help them get there. I will be doing my best to get as many goals as I can.
"There are good players here at Everton and I think we deserve a better position in the league. I aim to help Everton do just that."
Jelavic is aware that Premier League defenders will have him in their sights, but he claims to be looking forward to the challenge of testing himself against the best in the business.
He said: "It is a step up and I know I need to be better. But I learnt a lot in Scotland and that helped me a lot as a player.
"There are a lot of difficult games in Scotland and it is always 100 per cent. It is just that sometimes maybe the quality is not as high as in England. I know I will need to be better but I am ready. I am used to challenges and I just can't wait to get on to the pitch and go for goals.
"There is always pressure but I look on it as a challenge. I know everybody will be expecting good things from me. I am ready.
"I see that as more of a challenge to myself - not pressure. I am motivated to show that I deserve to be here and to play."
