The 20-year-old Italian forward is with the League One club on a two-month loan from Manchester City.
"He's got that little bit of arrogance in his play, in a nice way," said Dickov.
"When you look at him he looks a little bit gangly and a little bit light-weight, and he possibly doesn't look the quickest. But when he's got the ball at his feet he's got the natural ability just to drift past players.
"That's not the sort of thing that you can teach people, that's ability that you're born with. What we've got to try and do is get the best out of him and the more he plays in the team, the more he gets to know his team-mates and the more his team-mates get to know him the better he will be."
