Agbonlahor issues Darwin Nunez prediction after 'explosive' Liverpool reveal
Darwin Nunez is beginning to adapt to Liverpool and will be an asset going forward, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker admitted Nunez is raw but his pace and attacking instincts mean he will get better.
After a slow start to the season, the 23-year-old has seven goals and an assist in his last 10 appearances across all competitions for Liverpool.
Luis Suarez told the Mirror on Saturday (19 November) that his fellow Uruguayan has “exploded” and he has been mentoring him behind the scenes.
“When I look at him, sometimes he looks quite raw,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“Sometimes he overruns the ball, his first touch is not great and he plays the wrong pass.

“But that rawness can sometimes work in his favour. You don’t know what he’s going to do, you don’t know if he’s going to pass it or run past you.
“In that Liverpool team you’ll always get chances if you attack the box and that’s what he’s been doing. He’s been getting a lot of efforts on the volley and he looks like he’s good on the volley and at taking quick efforts.
“He’s quicker than I thought he was.
“I like him, to be honest. I think he’s going to be an asset for Liverpool, for sure.”
Nunez moved to Anfield from Benfica in a deal that could reach £85million in the summer.
He now has nine goals and two assists in 18 games across all competitions this term.
