Wijnaldum sets out his Liverpool goals

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."
