Friends and family of Liam and Noel are also said to be hoping that the pair will pay a visit to their mother Peggy together as she has been devastated by their rift.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Liam and Noel for comment.

Liam and Noel have been feuding since Oasis split in 2009 after an argument backstage at an arena in Paris.
News of the brothers putting aside their differences comes after Liam sent Oasis fans into a frenzy by suggesting the iconic band could reunite in 2022.
The rocker hinted that he and Noel could join forces once again and put an end to their decade long feud, while claiming his famous sibling has been ‘begging him’ to start up Oasis again in two years time.
Liam told his fans on social media that he plans to retire from his solo career after releasing his third album.

In a series of tweets, the Wonderwall hit-maker wrote: ‘After album no3 I’m gonna split up with myself I just don’t think I’ll be able to work with myself any longer I can write what I like and so can he but I think it’s for the best.
‘I intend to retire as solo artist after album no3 as I have just had a call from my brother begging me to start oasis again in 2022 if you believe in life after love c’mon you know LG x.’
Naturally fans were a little dubious of Liam’s tweets, given his history with brother Noel and their longstanding feud that has been running ever since Oasis famously split in 2009 and the duo went their separate ways.

‘Swear to god this best not be a wind up,’ one fan replied, while another said: ‘STOP TEASING US LIAM.’
A third fan wrote: ‘Don’t mess with my heart Liam!!!!!’ While another simply tweeted: ‘LIAM STOP.’
Others urged Liam not to give up his solo career, while championing news of Oasis potentially getting back together, as one follower posted: ‘I’d like to believe you on Oasis but I don’t want you to retire as a solo artist. Your very good on your own.’
It’s not the first time Liam has suggested an Oasis reunion is on the cards, as he previously told fans on Twitter that he and Noel were planning to bring back the band, once Noel has taken his year-long break away from music.
Former Oasis frontman Liam told a fan he could see him and Noel reuniting the Wonderwall group for Glastonbury 2021, after his brother takes a year off in 2020 – ruling out an appearance at the Somerset-based festival this year for its 50th anniversary.

‘Don’t be a wind up’: Fans were dubious of Liam’s tweet, however, given his acrimonious history with brother Noel and called out the former Oasis frontman for teasing them
Liam tweeted: ‘Too soon the little fella has threatened to take a year off which I highly recommend so I reckon he’ll give his head a good shake and bingo we’ll be on for the following year isn’t it.’ [sic]
The former Beady Eye star also claimed last year that Noel – who quit Oasis after the backstage bust-up in Paris, ‘wants to meet up’ with him and believes it’s in the hope of pulling off an Oasis reunion.
‘I’ve heard he wants to meet up wonder what he wants maybe he wants to apologise and beg me to let him start up oasis again thoughts anyone,’ [sic] Liam tweeted.
Noel, meanwhile, suggested in December that he would be willing to reconcile with younger brother Liam.
The Wandering Star singer said he wants to make up with Liam for the sake of their mother Peggy in an interview with The Sunday Times.

‘Our family has never been close. I don’t know one person, one single person, in my life who is living in the perfect family. Not one.’
He then added: ‘Reconciliation is a good thing.’
Noel and Liam are often seen taking swipes at each other on Twitter, with Noel’s hints at a reconciliation last month coming just days after Liam publicly branded the former Oasis guitarist a ‘bully’.
Liam hit out at his estranged sibling after hearing Noel’s comments in a recent radio interview on Radio X, where he insisted the brothers’ feud was not ‘f***ing banter’.
Noel had responded to Liam seemingly saying kind words about his brother during his last appearance on Radio X.
Taking the sentiment with a pinch of salt, Noel accused Liam of verbally abusing his family, and said: ‘That doesn’t mean s**t to me. Because he’s on Twitter probably right now saying the exact opposite so it doesn’t mean anything.

‘It’s like no, no, no, you don’t get to f*****g to do both. Either be a c*** and own it or don’t be a c***. When I eventually see him, he’ll realise it’s not f*****g banter.’
Liam responded by hitting out at Noel on Twitter and penned: ‘Noel Kevin Keegan Gallagher is the funniest thing I’ve seen or heard in over a decade the gift that keeps on giving.
‘I’m scared I’m seriously upping my security so many people out there wanting to cause me harm HELP ME. There all BIG BULLYS.’ [sic]
Prior to Liam’s recent claims Noel has been ‘begging him’ for an Oasis reunion, Noel had suggested that ‘every tweet’ Liam posts about him is ‘another nail in the coffin’ for Oasis getting back together.
Speaking with The Big Issue, Noel claimed his younger sibling is a ‘moron’ for thinking he’ll forgive him for repeatedly insulting him and his family.
Noel said: ‘It’s strange behaviour for someone who is gagging for me to pick up the phone and say let’s do it. He’d put his whole life on hold to get Oasis back together. But every tweet he sends out it’s another nail in the coffin of that idea.’
