'Die Werkself' recently announced that the striker would make the switch to BayArena in the summer, at which point he is out of contract.
However, according to Bild, the 27-year-old striker is expected to complete his move this month, with the two clubs close to agreeing a fee in the region of €5 million.
Azmoun has scored 10 goals in 21 games for Zenit this season.
