Manchester City midfielder Elano believes qualification for Europe is a realistic target this season.
The Brazilian has been the source of much of City's incisive play following his £8million summer move from Shakhtar Donetsk.
Sven Goran Eriksson's side have made an impressive start to the 2007/2008 campaign and currently sit sixth in the Premier League table.
And Elano is sure his team-mates have enough quality to secure Uefa Cup or even UEFA Champions League football for next season.
The 26-year-old schemer also outlined his belief that Eriksson's side will soon be in a position to challenge for the title, while praising the Swede's managerial skills.
"Eventually we will try and get some titles or trophies - maybe next year or the year after we will go for a title," he told Sky Sports News.
"The title (this season) is too early, we want to do things by stages, and do things properly.
"This year; maybe a Uefa Cup place or Champions League place. The main thing is playing well and being happy with my team-mates.
"I had never met Eriksson before I moved to Manchester City, but our position in the league is down to what happens on the training pitch."
