It is believed the Bluebirds have beaten their previous £8.5m club-record transfer fee to bring the centre-half to South Wales.
Caulker made 29 appearances for Tottenham last season, scoring twice, after impressing on loan at Swansea City the season before last.
The 21-year-old came through the ranks at White Hart Lane and was widely considered a promising prospect.
Spurs have been linked with a £6.9m move for Steau Bucharest’s Vlad Chiriches.
