After Liverpool announced the arrival of Nunez, the German spoke about what the 22-year-old forward will offer his side next campaign.
“Darwin is a wonderful player; already really good but so much potential to get even better. That’s why it’s so exciting, to be honest," Klopp said to Liverpoolfc.com.
"His age, his desire, his hunger to be even better than he currently is. His belief in our project and what we are looking to do as a club.
“He is as excited by us as we are by him, which makes for a great relationship, when you appreciate each other’s strengths. That is certainly the case here. He thinks we suit him and we believe he is the right fit for us – so let’s do it.
“He has all the pieces we look for. He can set a tempo, he brings energy, he can threaten space from central and wide areas. He is aggressive and dynamic with his movement.
“He plays without fear, he’s powerful. I know he will excite our supporters."

Anfield Watch Verdict
Klopp knows that this kid is special. Yes, Liverpool paid €100 million to secure Nunez's signature, but the German would not have sanctioned the signing if he wasn't worth every penny.
The two games he played against us last season in the Champions League were just a snippet of what we can expect from him.
He's going to cause a lot of issues in the Premier League next season and he gives us such a different dynamic, something we have lacked under Klopp.
Hopefully he can settle into the league and club quite quickly so we can push Manchester City and reclaim the Premier League title.
Exciting times are ahead for Liverpool Football Club.
