The former Swansea man admits he has endured a tough time since joining the Merseysiders but insists he is ready to move forward in a more advanced role at Anfield
The Wales international faded after a promising start to his debut season at Anfield following a £15 million move from Swansea, and a hamstring injury has disrupted his progress this term.

"I've been pretty open - last year didn't quite go as well as I would have hoped," he told Liverpool's official website.
"There were certain games and moments where I did well - the key is to get that consistently.
"A lot of people have spoken to me, fellow players have said about moving to a different club for the first time. It is the first time I have experienced that.
"That's out of the way now, so hopefully I'm a year on and a year more experienced because of that."
Allen went revealed he would relish the opportunity to play in a more advanced role, a position he has previously occupied for boss Brendan Rodgers.
"If I have the chance to play further forward, like I did in pre-season, goals are obviously another big one that I'd like to add a bit more to my game," he added.
"It's something I felt was coming at Swansea, and last season sort of stopped a little bit. That's something I think I can offer looking forward."
