Reports in Italy claim the 23-year-old centre-back arrived at Rome's Fiumincino airport from Athens on Tuesday morning and will undergo a medical later in the day.
Roma have reportedly agreed a 13million euros (10.4 million pounds) transfer fee with Olympiakos for the highly rated defender, who still has two years left in his contract with the Greek giants.
Manolas, who played four games at the World Cup for Greece this summer, attracted the attention of top European clubs, including Arsenal and Juventus, following a solid 2013-14 campaign with Olympiakos.
He made 25 league appearances last season and scored three goals while he also featured in seven Champions League games for the Piraeus-based club.
