The 21-year-old was drafted in this summer to replace Ricardo Carvalho, who moved on to Chelsea.
The Brazilian has already caught the eye of Deportivo boss Javier Irureta - who believes the club's early season problems are down to defensive weaknesses.
Depor sent director of sports Eduardo Beci to watch Pepe in action, although the Spaniard was staying coy over any approach.
"This club has contacts all over the world and is always on the lookout for interesting players," said Beci.
The Spanish side are also currently trying to sign Argentina international Andres D'Alessandro.
