Simon Cowell apparently wants the Destiny's Child singer to judge on the Stateside version of the singing competition following her successful stint in the UK.
The potential move would mean current X Factor USA judge Nicole Scherzinger swapping jobs with Rowland and moving to the UK show.
"Simon thinks she'll be amazing on the US show," a source told Now magazine. "Nicole's had a mixed reaction in the US, so there's talk of a job swap."
An X Factor spokesperson added: "No decisions have been made regarding next year's UK or US shows."
It was recently reported that Louis Walsh is the only judge to have signed a contract for next year's X Factor, meaning Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland will have to wait until next year for their negotiations.
