Davy Klaassen has targeted playing in a second successive Europa League final after joining Everton. The Netherlands international fell short with Ajax last season, with the Dutch giants succumbing to a 2-0 defeat to Manchester United in Stockholm back in May.
It would prove his final game for Ajax, with Klaassen completing a €27million move to the Blues last week.
And with Everton qualifying for the Europa League after their seventh place finish in the Premier League in 2016/17, the new signing has his sights set on going one better next time around.
“That would be a really nice way to end my first season at Everton,” he said. “It was a great experience [last year]. The further you go in the competition, the greater it becomes.
“It was a great experience for us as a young team and I think we all learned a lot from it."
Klaassen intends to use that experience to help the Toffees make as much progress as they can on the continent.
Having faced top sides like Schalke and Lyon with Ajax in Europe, he believes it will also help him adapt to the rigours of the Premier League.
“I think my experiences in the Champions League and Europa League will help me adapt,” he added. “You cannot compare the Dutch competition to the Premier League, Champions League or Europa League, there’s a big difference. We will see how I adapt.
“I’m looking forward to it a lot. It’s the biggest league and I always watched it at home. Everyone in Holland watches the Premier League.”
