The race for the 2018/19 Premier League Golden Boot is wide open with six players separated by only three goals.
The 2014/15 winner is leading the way as he looks to reclaim from Mohamed Salah the prize presented by Cadbury.
Injury has limited Aguero to only 26 appearances, the joint-fewest of Golden Boot contenders, but he has still struck 18 times.
Describing Aguero as an "out-an-out goalscorer," Neville thinks the Argentinian will claim the Golden Boot this season.
"He's got so much quality around him in terms of crosses from the right and left," says Neville.
"He's always going to get chances."
Aguero was not called up by Argentina over the international break and so is rested for consecutive matches against opposition in the bottom three.
Against Saturday's opponents, Fulham, the 30-year-old has scored four goals in as many starts.
Perhaps City's toughest test before the season end is the trip to Old Trafford.
But Aguero has struck a PL record eight times in the Manchester derby and Neville cannot speak highly enough of his favourite for the Golden Boot.
"He's world, world-class," he says. "His record at Man City makes him one of the greatest foreign imports in terms of goal scoring that we’ve ever had."
