Ed Sheeran reportedly wants to work with American actress and singer Selena Gomez in his next song.

According to a report in Hollywood Life, the 24-year-old Thinking Out Loud crooner thinks Justin Bieber's former girlfriend has a "great voice".

"Ed and Selena have been hanging out a lot together, but there's nothing going on there. They just want to get to know each other better because they're considering working with one another," a source told the website.

"Ed would love to write for Selena. He thinks she's super-talented, has a great voice and the right appeal to front one of his songs," the insider added. "Ed doesn't want to start anything with Justin Bieber and write a song for Selena about him. He feels she should concentrate on something else."

Meanwhile, during an interview on The Z100 Morning Show, the 22-year-old Come And Get It singer said she does not want people who spread negativity in her life.

"If you're going to sit here and talk about my life, I have a right to say what I want and obviously I'm going to do it the way I wish to. But it is unfortunate, and you have to be guarded. I just told you during the break, I don't trust anyone… It's something that I have to live with and I have to find the balance of who I want in my life and who isn't good for me," Gomez said.
