The 20-year-old is currently with the Reds squad in Hong Kong, but is not likely to remain on Merseyside for long on their return next week.
Liverpool have already accepted loan offers from three clubs for the youngster, including from Hull and Leeds, leaving Kent with the decision over his destination for 2017/18.
Before he departs, however, Kent is in line for an improved deal, suggesting he has a long-term future under Jurgen Klopp.
According to the Hull Daily Mail, Kent’s loan will only be rubber-stamped once he puts pen to paper, with his current contract set to expire in 2019.
Kent has previously spent loan spells with Coventry City and Barnsley, and made significant progress with the latter last season.
He has been impressive when called upon this pre-season, shining in the second half against both Tranmere Rovers and Crystal Palace, almost scoring late on in Hong Kong.
The decision to loan both him and Sheyi Ojo out this summer is something of a questionable one, given the Reds’ busy schedule, but Klopp is clearly eager to tie him down for the future.
This is a similar case with Ojo, who played a focal role in the 4-0 victory over Tranmere, laying on two assists.
But if both Kent and Ojo depart on loan, there remains a lack of natural wingers in Klopp’s squad for the upcoming campaign.
Experience is vital for the 20-year-old duo, naturally, and Kent joining either Leeds or Hull, and Ojo one of Fulham, Middlesbrough or Derby County, would provide them with that.
When they come into contention for a regular role at Liverpool is still up in the air, but a new deal for Kent would underline Klopp’s faith.
