The midfielder’s current club, Internacional have already announced that a deal has been agreed for the Brazilian.
A work permit would have to be awarded for the 21-year-old, with the transfer fee said to be around Â£6-9million.
“It would be fantastic,” said Redknapp. “The chairman has been dealing with it. I got a phone call this morning from the chairman saying that he thought we were close to doing it.
“Hopefully it will get done now and it will be a good signing.
“He is an outstanding young player. He is on the verge of the Brazilian team. He has already played for Brazil and captained the Under-18s, 19s and 21s.
“He is strong. He looks a very, very good player so I am looking forward to getting him here.”
