Brentford have followed the defender for some time and tried to sign him in August when Gremio were looking for £13.5m.
Vanderson has yet to be capped by Brazil at full international level and the move will be subject to a work permit. He is strong going forward and good at taking set pieces.
Brentford have made an excellent impact on their first season in the Premier League and owner Matthew Benham is keen to strengthen the squad ahead of the second half of the season.
Talks are continuing with Vanderson and his representatives but all parties are hopeful of concluding a deal for January.
