Petr Cech is confident Chelsea will be able to attract the top players during the summer transfer window.

The Blues have been linked with summer moves for a host of star names in recent months, including the likes of Atletico Madrid forward Radamel Falcao and Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Andre Schürrle.

And goalkeeper Cech believes that the west Londoners’ Europa League triumph over Benfica last week has helped promote Stamford Bridge as an attractive destination for the world’s top talent.

“Last season everyone wanted Eden Hazard and because we won the Champions League he chose our club ahead of everybody else,” Cech told Chelsea’s website.

“This year we won back-to-back European trophies and I believe that win in Amsterdam was again very important because players choosing between teams may rather choose Chelsea because they always win something.”

Chelsea finished third in the Premier League to secure a direct route into next season’s Champions League group stage.
