The government is also likely to nominate an academic and a central banker to fill the two deputy governor posts that also open up on March 19, the sources said.
Kuroda, Japan's top currency diplomat, has been a strong candidate to succeed incumbent BOJ Governor Masaaki Shirakawa, who leaves after a five-year term.
