It's hard to believe that it's been almost 13 years since Liverpool signed Luis Suárez for Ajax. In one of the most turbulent January transfer windows in the club's history, at the time few would have predicted that the Uruguayan would surpass the achievements of Fernando Torres at Anfied, who was on his way to Chelsea.

But Suárez did more than just fill the void left behind by Torres, he developed his own cult status at Liverpool, and his legacy on the pitch is still fondly remembered by supporters. There is no doubt that Suárez was one of the best players to have played for Liverpool in recent memory at least.

Initially, though, the Uruguayan first made his mark in Europe in the Eredivisie. He signed for Groningen from Nacional and then ended up moving to Ajax, where he broke the record for the most goals in a calendar year during 2009, scoring 30 goals back when he was 22 years old.

Since then, it's become a record that no one has been able to surpass in 14 years, but that might be about to change. Mexican forward Santiago Giménez is currently on 29 goals for the calendar year in the Eredivisie, and he still has three more games left to play for Feyenoord before his year concludes.

With the Mexican having found the back of the net in the league 16 times already in 13 appearances and having failed to score in just four of those appearances, it means that the 22-year-old is very much on the verge of breaking the former Liverpool forward's Eredivisie record.

Since arriving at Feyenoord from Mexican side Cruz Azul, Giménez has been a revelation. He's scored 41 goals in 61 games and helped his side to a league title, and he's dominated not just in the Eredivisie but in Europe as well.

This season, he has two goals in three games in the Champions League, while last season he had five goals in nine games in the Europa League, helping his side reach the quarter-finals of the competition. The marker of a great striker is one who can produce similar goalscoring rates in European competitions as in a more inferior domestic league, and the fact that Giménez has been able to do that would suggest he is a striker worth keeping an eye on.

Liverpool isn't necessarily in need of another forward, but perhaps more competition for Darwin Núñez could bring out an even better side of the Uruguay international. With Giménez having proven himself as a great finisher for Feyenoord over the last couple of years, and Liverpool having lacked a clinical edge recently, making a move for the Mexican could prove to be a smart move.
