Georginio Wijnaldum says he’s desperate to open his goalscoring account for new club Liverpool.
The Dutchman has yet to find the back of the net since his £25million move from Newcastle but he’s made a good impression in midfield in Jurgen Klopp’s side, grabbing two assists in the 4-1 victory over Leicester on Saturday.
Wijnaldum scored 11 goals for the Magpies last season and says he wants to hit a similar amount for the Reds.
“You get used to scoring goals,” he said in the Liverpool Echo. “During the years I have scored a lot of goals as a midfielder and when you get that feeling, you always want to score.
“You’re going to have a hunger to score goals and you’re going to be greedy to score goals. That’s what I am right now.”
The 25-year-old says helping the team by creating goals is also important as he looks to make a big contribution in the final third for Klopp’s side.
He added: “This couple of games it was with assists, but I’m relaxed and easy, I have faith in my qualities and I know goals will come.
“The most important thing is how can I help the team? If that’s with assists then so be it.”
