The Brazilian has scored five goals in seven starts for the Blues and settled into the team seamlessly.
The boss, however, says the youngster has a lot of work ahead of him in order to get where he wants to be, but expects him to achieve his goals.
“His impact has been big,” said Pep.
“His gap to improve is huge and we want to help him do that.
"He is so open minded – his first mentality is to help the team. When he loses the ball, he runs to fight for it back. I love that.”
Pep also revealed that Gabriel has a thirst to learn and continually takes advice from his peers.
“I like the way he listens to his teammates such as Fernandinho and others,” he said.
“He wants to become a great player; a better player, and he is willing to take advice and work hard.
“We cannot forget that Gabriel Jesus was out for three months injured. He is still young and has a lot of things to improve.
“Both Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero have great qualities. They can definitely play together.”
Brazilian believes there's plenty of reason to positive for the new campaign.
The Spain midfielder has been one of Pep Guardiola’s most consistent performers this season and was once again voted man of the match by the City Matchday app users after the 2-1 win over Leicester on Saturday.
The game kicks off at 8pm on Tuesday 16 May.
