Harry Styles is wanted by Sony Music.

The 'Story of My Life' singer is the most hotly sought after member of One Direction since the band confirmed they are taking a long break next March and record bosses at the label giant are eagerly waiting to sign him to a massive solo deal.

A Sony insider revealed: ''Harry has always been One Direction's most popular member and it's obvious that we want to secure him. He's a global superstar.

''Zayn will get to release an album first, as he left the band earlier, but the most excitement is about what Harry is going to do.

''Everyone wants to know what his solo material will sound like, there's also a lot of pressure to get it right.

''Harry is a smart guy and is really good at surrounding himself with talented people.''

However, the handsome singer won't be tied down to just the music business.

Earlier this year movie boss Harvey Weinstein met the with said there's ''no question'' that Harry will enter Hollywood at some point.

He told The Sun newspaper: ''There's no question he will enter the movie business. I get from him that he wants to. When you meet him, he's super-charismatic.

''He came to our Oscars party last year and then I went out to lunch with him. I think the guy is a movie star. He doesn't have to audition for me.''
