The Italian giants had already agreed a fee of around £10 million with Leverkusen for the player but the deal collapsed over personal terms.
Lucio then pledged his future to the German side, saying that he wanted to be part of the squad who would bounce back next season after their nightmare showing last term.
Italian rivals Juventus then entered the race for his signature and looked set to sign the defender, but now Roma appear to be back in the frame.
It is thought that a fee of around é¼20 million for the player has been agreed and the club are confident of closing the deal within 48 hours.
If they fail to land their target this time then the deal for the Brazilian international will surely be dead.
