The 24-year-old is yet to make his competitive debut for the Reds this season, after signing from AS Monaco in July, but he is adapting well to life at his new club and feels ready to make his debut.

"My start has been good and the adaptation good. The pre-season was very good, we had nine friendlies and I played nine," he told Globo Esporte.

"It was good to play against English teams to see what the rhythm, the intensity and the physique is like. I am adapting to the team's style of play. The more experienced players have helped me, the technical team as well.

"Me and my wife are liking the city, we already have a home. Firmino is being a great guy, his family has given a good support to me and Alisson.

"It's been fine. Having Brazilians in the team helps. Now it's really to make the debut. I'm fine, training well and prepared."

The defensive midfielder made 46 appearances for Monaco across all competitions last season, scoring eight goals and providing five assists.
