Chelsea midfielder Ramires believes Hulk would be a great addition to the squad and hopes a deal can be agreed to bring his fellow Brazilian to Stamford Bridge.
Hulk has been linked with a move to the Blues in the past and reports this week have again suggested he is one of their top transfer targets for the summer.
The Porto striker hinted on Monday it could be time for him to leave Portuguese football and try his luck in a different country.
Ramires has been monitoring the developments with interest and, having played with Hulk at international level, is sure he would be a great success in the Premier League.
"I'm following here from Brazil the news about Chelsea's likely signing of Hulk," Ramires told Lancenet.
"I hope he does come, I have played with him for the Brazilian national team, and I also played against him when I was at Benfica and he would surely add a lot to Chelsea's squad.
"If it was up to me, everything would be done already."
Ramires is looking forward to watching Euro 2012 this summer but his allegiance is split between a number of countries and his main hope is that Chelsea's players all perform well.
He explained: "I'm supporting England and Spain as those are the teams that have more Chelsea players, and I will also support Portugal due to the huge affection I have for the Portuguese people, besides my friendship with Raul Meireles.
"Some other team-mates are also playing the tournament, such as Malouda for France. I hope some of them shine in the competition as that will be good for Chelsea."
