Manchester City forward says he wants to learn from the Argentinian to develop himself into a better striker.

Sergio Aguero

will leave

Manchester City

at the end of the season. The Argentinian striker is the Citizens’ all-time top scorer and he is considered as one of the greatest players in the history of the club.

Gabriel Jesus

, who is currently the main choice for the team’s number 9 position, says he considers Aguero as a role model to become a better striker.

"I can learn a little bit [from him] but he's more properly striker than me, he scored more than me,"

Jesus told

Sky Sports News.

"He goes to the pitch and he scores, he's more striker than me, I can say that because I work with him every day and I play a lot with him.

"When we play together I score one, he scores two, I score two and he scores three. I think I'm going to learn a lot in these next years to become a proper striker who scores a lot."

Jesus has scored 7 goals in his 21 appearances for Pep Guardiola’s side in their current league campaign. However, the Brazilian forward says winning trophies with his club is more important to him than individual records. Asked about his desire to score more goals than last season, Jesus responded:

"It's difficult because I have to score more than 10,15 goals, and there's still 15/16 games left, but if we win the titles I don't care about goals,"

he says.

"I care about celebrating the titles with my team-mates at the end of the season."

He added:

"I have to go more in the box, sometimes I don't go in the box, that's why I don't score a lot, because normally if you see the best strikers at the moment they all go to the box, some of them go outside the box to create and then go to the box,

"Not me, I think my football is - I go outside the box, I create with my friends and I wait for the goal. Sometimes I go and I score, but I have to put in my head that when I arrive, I score."
