She is reportedly writing a submission for the theme, which will take the title of the as-yet-unnamed Bond 23 film.
“Adele is the obvious choice to record the next Bond theme,” a source told the newspaper.
“The last few songs for the spy movies have hardly set the charts alight. After her success this year film-makers know the song is almost guaranteed to be a huge hit.”
Getting the theme song for James Bond, which is played in full at the start of the movie with a stylised music video, could be huge for the star, if she hasn’t attracted millions of fans already with her album 21.
Many Bond films are most recognisable by their theme song, such as Shirley Bassey’s Goldfinger, Paul McCartney’s Live and Let Die and Duran Duran’s A View to a Kill.
The Someone Like You singer has taken a hit this week, however, being forced to cancel her ten-city US tour due to a haemorrhage in her vocal cords.
She has been plagued with voice problems recently, cancelling some UK shows as well, but she was due to play in Atlantic City, New Jersey on October 7th.
Posting a blog on her website, she said: “Singing is literally my life, it’s my hobby, my love, my freedom and now my job. I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or I risk damaging my voice forever.”
Adele added that she will be starting vocal rehabilitation soon and building stamina in her voice before she starts up the tour again.
