The agreement is understood to be for 48 Eurofighter Typhoon jets, with an option for a further 24, people close to the talks told the newspaper.
The hugely over-budget Eurofighter is a joint development between BAE Systems, EADS and Finmeccanica.
The deal followed news yesterday of a framework agreement on closer defence ties between the UK and Saudi governments.
