Jurgen Klopp remains adamant Darwin Nunez is “really getting there” as he continues to adjust to life at Anfield.

Liverpool made the Uruguayan possibly their most expensive signing in history when they secured his services from Benfica last summer. Nunez had enjoyed a breakout campaign in Lisbon, scoring 34 goals, but has not been able to show that form consistently on Merseyside.

Nunez, sent off on his home debut, has faced high expectations and has struggled at times. The 23-year-old’s arrival represented a slight change in the way Liverpool play but he has scored 12 goals and Klopp is more than happy with his efforts.

The forward thought he had scored the opener as Liverpool beat Wolves on Wednesday night, only to be denied by VAR. The Reds continued to take three points and the Uruguayan made further progress.

Klopp said of Nunez: “I would say he’s really getting there. Anyone can see he’s just a handful, just a real threat. again the [disallowed] The goal he scored was a great reaction, a great finish. The runs he had ended up being one again across the board [the] But the cross doesn’t matter [it was] pretty much like the Everton goal if you will. Using his speed both ways, offensively and defensively.

“He’s really good. He’s just a little boy and I think everyone can see that he’s going to make it, there’s no doubt about that, but he’s already super important to us. I think you all saw that [disallowed] Goal back a few times now and if you see it in slow motion you see the contact back then but I still think it was a goal but that doesn’t matter anymore.
