The Super Eagles striker has already been booked for his medical at Chinese Super League club, Chongchun Yatai, after a £20million fee was agreed for him .
It is understood that the deal was delayed a bit, because Ighalo prefers to join one of the clubs in Beijing or Shanghai.
He is now expected to sign a £200,000-per-week deal with Chongchun Yatai.
“Every morning I ask the club what the situation is, and negotiations are now at an advanced stage, so it should only be a matter of a couple of days,” Mazzari said.
Ighalo has struggled for goals this season, after netting 15 times last season in the league. He was also the top scorer across all four divisions in 2015.
He has only found the net twice this campaign.
However, Last summer, Ighalo turned down a £37.5m move to another Chinese club, Shanghai SIPD.
