Her X Factor USA colleague LA Reid is said to be looking to sign her to his Epic Records label at Sony, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Former Jive head Barry Weiss, who has worked with Spears in the past, is also interested in reuniting with her at Island Def Jam Motown and Universal Republic, who also have Justin Bieber, Kanye West and Mariah Carey among others.

Reid is said to have become good friends with Spears since she joined the upcoming second season of The X Factor USA, while Weiss believes that their own history will give him the edge in the battle for her signature.

"I have a 15-year history with Britney and would love to be reunited with her," Weiss said.

The singer's previous album was last year's Femme Fatale, with the singles 'Hold It Against Me' and 'Till the World Ends'.

Britney Spears recently said that being on The X Factor USA with Reid, Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato has been "good" for her.

The X Factor USA returns with a two-night premiere on Wednesday, September 12 and Thursday, September 13 on Fox.
