The Viola, who are having a superb season, are currently in fourth and three points behind Milan who occupy the final Champions League qualifying berth.
Montella's men secured a 2-0 win at Atalanta on Saturday night but only have six games left in the remainder of their Serie A season.
Milan face Napoli on Sunday night in a crucial tie that will likely decide second place in the standings and Montella has no problems supporting Walter Mazzarri's side.
"We are targeting Europe. This victory gives us confidence and belief. I would not consider the Europa League to be a consolation prize at all, but seeing as we are here, I say Forza Napoli," he told reporters after the game.
The win was secured despite the absence of star midfielder Stevan Jovetic and Montella confessed that it requried quite a tactical reshuffle on his part.
"We weren't moving fluidly enough in the first half, as the passing was predictable and Atalanta were doubling up on the flanks to stop us keeping possession in midfield," he continued.
"Once we returned to our preferred system, which sadly meant taking off Alberto Aquilani, we felt more at ease. Adem Ljajic had a decisive impact on the game, but he could've been sharper and played better in certain situations.
"Mounir El Hamdaoui had to adapt to a style of play that was unusual for him, much like Aquilani, and paid the price for that emergency situation.
"Marcelo Larrondo scored a great goal and I knew he had quality, he just needs to believe in himself and be more consistent."
David Pizarro scored a penalty in the game around the hour-mark with Larrondo scoring the second in the 72nd minute to complete a comfortable win for the visitors in Bergamo on Saturday night.
