Vincenzo Montella has arrived in Trigoria for talks about becoming Roma's caretaker boss.
Claudio Ranieri offered his resignation last night following a sensational 4-3 defeat to Genoa.
It was confirmed this morning after a meeting with Roma President Rosella Sensi.
Montella is the favourite to replace Ranieri after proving himself with Roma's youth team.
His agent Davide Lippi was at Marassi yesterday, indicating that talks had already started.
An announcement is expected later this afternoon.
