The 'Perfect Strangers' hitmaker would love to get the 23-year-old singer on a song and already has a track in mind, however, he also thinks the hunky star's former band mate Harry Styles would sound good on the song too.
Asked if he'd like to get a One Direction member - past and present - on a song, he exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''I think they all have unique voices. I think if anyone ... if I think of the tracks I've got now, probably Zayn or Harry.''
Meanwhile, the songwriter says he is hopeful a collaboration with Katy Perry will happen because the pair spent ages mulling over ideas recently.
He said: ''I met her at an event in Los Angeles and we are on the same record label. We had a good old chat, but let's see.''
The 27-year-old DJ - whose real name is Guy Robin - previously missed out on a UK number one single with his track 'Fast Car' after he was beaten to the top spot by Zayn and his debut solo single 'Pillow Talk', but he insists he wasn't too disappointed.
When asked if he would avoid releasing a single around Zayn's music in the future, he said: ''It doesn't bother me if I'm honest to be up against somebody like Zayn who was in one of the biggest boy bands in the world.
''It's not a bad thing and the streaming was way up there as well so yeah it was a good place to be [but] unfortunately he did get the number one spot.'' And while he was gutted to lose out on the top spot to the 'Cruel' singer - he said he wouldn't rule out collaboration with him as he thinks ''he is great.''
