Manchester City are just two months away from having one of the most exciting prospects in football, 19-year-old Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus. The top scorer in the Brasileirão and the starting striker for the national team looks set to take the Premier League by storm, and one of his Brazil teammates who's already a Premier League star is confident Jesus will be very good in England.

Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho is currently playing with Gabriel for Brazil in the World Cup South America Qualifiers, and speaking in an interview with Brazilian media, Coutinho showed he's confident that Gabriel has all the tools to not only adapt, but succeed in England.

“He is a crack player. He will have no difficulty in adapting – he is an agile, strong and fast player. Everything you need to play in England, he has it, and I'm sure he will do well.”

If Gabriel Jesus turns out to be like Coutinho in the Premier League, then Pep Guardiola will have a very good player in his squad.

Brazilian players are good, aren't they?
