Leicester have agreed a fee with Hull City for goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic, according to Sky sources.
Sky Sports News HQ understands the 32-year-old has left the Tigers' training camp in Portugal to hold talks with the Foxes.
Jakupovic impressed at times for Hull last season despite their relegation to the Championship and Sky sources reported before the end of the campaign that he was of interest to Leicester, Crystal Palace and Watford.
The once-capped Switerland 'keeper kept six clean sheets last term, including against Manchester United and Liverpool, and made 27 appearances overall.
Leicester have already signed centre-back Harry Maguire from Hull this summer - the first of three signings so far alongside Vincent Iborra from Sevilla and youngster Sam Hughes.
Hull have lost a number of first-team players this summer including Curtis Davies and Tom Huddlestone to Derby County, and Josh Tymon to Stoke City.
Jakupovic looks set to follow and provide competition for Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel.
