"I am looking forward to seeing him play. He is unpredictable and that sometimes in the Premier League is a good asset to have."
The 24-year-old made the switch from Teesside to Merseyside for a Club record fee of £11.25million and Sharp explains such a fee is the going rate for a proven Premiership striker.
"I think it is a good acquisition. People will look at the price tag and raise their eyebrows but that is the price you have to pay these days for a proven goalscorer in the Premier League," he said.
"It would be great if he can score 20 goals. The more successful your strikers are the higher up the league table you will finish."
