Ighalo, 31, still has a year left on his contract at Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua, who will be willing to sell him.
“I can confirm that some Premier League clubs, two teams outside England and some clubs in the Middle East have made formal inquiries,” the striker’s agent told BBC Sport Africa.
