The Portuguese international has been Porto’s best player this season, guiding them to the title of Primeira Liga.
Pereira (24), played under Puel while at French side Nice and the Foxes boss is a huge fan.
The Porto right-back has played 46 times for the Portuguese champions scoring 4 times after signing from first tier team Vitória Guimarães SC.
Leicester have been following Pereira for a little while now, and reports in Portugal confirm the signing of the highly rated right-back.
There were a number of clubs after the signature of Pereira including Spurs, Arsenal and Valencia.
Leicester have fought off a number of clubs for Ricardo who was swayed to sign for the Foxes due to his connection with Claude Puel.
Pereira will sign on a 5 year deal worth just under £25m, with an official announcement to be made shortly.
