£85million Liverpool striker Darwin Nunes has admitted his first season in the Premier League has been difficult to adapt to but hopes to emulate former fan favorite Luis Suarez and "break out" in the future.

Nunes has scored just 10 goals in 25 appearances since his club-record £85m deal was agreed by Benfica in the summer, however his overall form has taken fans by surprise. The Uruguayan has often caused problems for opposition defences, but he has been criticized for wasting chances.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has repeatedly backed Nunez, despite the 23-year-old coming off the bench in the club's last four games.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Nunez admitted he is still getting used to the physicality of the Premier League and echoed Klopp's advice to keep his composure in goal.

"I don't think I'm playing well at the moment, but I always want to improve,' Nunez said. 'I try to improve every day.

"Klopp knows my strength is my speed, running into space. Also, he tells me that I need to be more calm when I'm playing, and that I need to move more.

"He tells me that I need that, and that I am a player with a lot of quality. So, that's more or less what he wants from me - and, of course, that I score goals.'

"He has told me that I have to be calm in games when it comes to finishing.

"He wants me to take a second longer, because if I shoot with anger, or I rush it, then it will always go badly.

"He asks me to take an extra second, with calmness, and I will score."

Nunez also revealed he had spoken to the former Liverpool star Luis Suarez, who he hopes to emulate by setting alight the Premier League in the near future.
