The Greece international has been a mainstay in the Roma defence this season, starting 11 Serie A fixtures and featuring in further three Champions League games.
The 24-year-old stands at 6ft 1inch and can be best described as a rugged defender with excellent distribution from the back, a factor which please Arsene Wenger or Mauricio Pochettino.
As per the report in the Sunday People, Spurs are Arsenal are keeping tabs on him ahead of January with the latter looking at viable cover for Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker in the case of injuries.
A good signing?
Manolas has proven himself both in Italy and on the European stage to be a top-draw centre-back, though any potential arrival in North London would pose a number of interesting questions.
The Gunners already have defensive alternatives in Calum Chambers and Gabriel Paulista, the latter only joining the club 12 months ago from La Liga side Villarreal.
While Chambers hasn’t performed to expectations since joining the club from Southampton, he is still very young and has bags of potential to improve during his time at the Emirates.
Likewise, Spurs have options beyond Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld with summer signing Kevin Wimmer, Federico Fazio and of course Eric Dier all capable of filling in.
