Jesus will remain at his current club until the end of the Brazilian league season in early December, and his coach Cuca has spoken warmly about the player.
“He is 19 years old, will turn 20 and will learn a lot over the course of time," he told SporTV.
"He has the essentials. He likes contact, combines explosiveness with speed.
“In a one-on-one he does very well. It is difficult to find such a player.
“Credit to Gabriel because he wanted to stay [until the end of the season]. If he wanted to leave, he would have. I am very happy with his professionalism.
“He gives his life in games and in training he does the same thing.
“He's a golden boy, and no doubt will take off further in his career because he is a great professional."
