The in-form Dutch star has five to his name so far this term - with three of them coming in the league - and he's confident his recent improvements will be rewarded with more goals over the coming weeks and months.
"I've said before that goalscoring is a quality of my game and I'm pleased I've been able to show that lately," he told liverpoolfc.tv.
"I have three Premier League goals so far and I hope to reach ten before the end of the season. Of course, if I can score more then that would be even better but to get ten would mean I'd had a good first season here.
He added: "I feel as though I'm taking small steps forward in terms of performance levels but I'm not the finished article yet. I'm still in a learning period at Liverpool but the fact we are playing better now than we were earlier in the season is making it easier for me to develop quickly.
"I knew it would take time because I came from Ajax where I played on the left of a 4-3-3 formation into a Liverpool team which plays 4-4-2 and where I was going to have more responsibility defending. At Ajax I didn't have to do any defending but that's not the case here. It's a new system and a new way of playing but I'm getting used to it and feel as though I'm getting better."
