Leicester City confirmed on Saturday they have agreed a fee with Porto for defender Ricardo Pereira, who will sign a five-year deal.
The 24-year-old has flown to England "to finalise personal terms on a five-year contract and complete a medical," the club confirmed on their website.
The defender is part of Portugal's FIFA 2018 World Cup squad, and his transfer should be completed on June 9 after international clearance has been received.
Pereira gave his reaction to securing a move to the King Power Stadium to the club's Twitter account:
The defender was part of a Porto team that won the Portuguese league by seven points from Benfica this season. The title is the club's first since 2013 and ends Benfica's recent dominance.
Freelance football writer Jan Hagen showed how much Leicester had paid for the defender, per a release from the Portuguese club:
Bleacher Report's Sam Tighe explained why that's such a good deal for the Foxes:
Leicester were in need of strengthening in defence, with 31-year-old Danny Simpson their only recognised right-back last season.
Manager Claude Puel replaced Craig Shakespeare as manager in October 2017 but has proven an unpopular choice among some sections of the support despite securing a top-10 finish.
James Nursey at the Mirror showed how some fans have reacted to Puel:
The signing of Ricardo is likely to impress supporters, and it seems as though Puel may have been a big factor in his decision to head to Leicester.
Get French Football explained Puel's likely influence in the transfer:
Leicester appear to have started their summer transfer business in fine style with an astute buy. The club may also strengthen further as Puel looks to build on what was a largely frustrating season.
