Louis Tomlinson eyes career as music mogul - report

One Direction star Louis Tomlinson is hoping to follow in the footsteps of his mentor SIMON COWELL by setting up a production company to find hot new music talent.

The singer has established a new business called 78 Productions Limited and has started following unsigned bands on Twitter, according to British newspaper The Sun.

It has sparked speculation he is looking to discover talented new groups after he and bandmate Liam Payne spotted the potential in 5 Seconds Of Summer and invited them on tour in 2013.

Sources tell The Sun that Tomlinson is leaning on The X Factor boss Cowell for advice, saying, "Louis spent a lot of time backstage at The X Factor last year, partly so he could spend time with Simon and get to know how the industry works."
