The company previously said that the three members would nominate a candidate to replace Ghosn, who was arrested last month for alleged financial misconduct.
The source, who declined to be identified as the matter was confidential, said a nominee would be chosen from within the existing board as early as Tuesday, and submitted to the rest of the board at their next meeting on Dec 17.
Nissan officials were not immediately available for comment.
Ghosn's detention has left the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi auto alliance without its leader and main interlocutor with the French government, which owns 15 percent of Renault and wants to maintain the ownership structure enshrining its control of the partnership.
