As we previously reported, US celebrity blogger Perez Hilton stated that Selieber had called it quits 'for good' after Justin started hanging out with Gomez's former beau Nick Jonas.
Now, HollywoodLife has now claimed that Selena is keen to hook-up with Horan - the only single member of 1D - after seeing how pal Taylor Swift got over her ex-boyfriend Conor Kennedy by dating curly-haired heartthrob, Harry Styles.
A source told the website: "She has seen what has happened with her friend Taylor and how dating Harry is getting her to get over her relationship with Conor Kennedy.
"Selena has said that she wants to start dating someone else to see if there is something better out there."
They added: "Wouldn’t be surprised if Selena had a double date with Taylor and any of the single One Direction kids if she doesn’t get back with Justin. But he cries over the phone and she takes him back again.”
Niall has previously been linked to Gomez's friend Demi Lovato, while he also struck up a close friendship with Bieber - who posted snaps of them hanging out in LA after the 2012 MTV VMAs in September.
