Eubank Jr has not fought because a career-best win over James DeGale this season.
"I really don't know what he's doing," said Hearn. "Is he retired?
"He had the best win of his career in February and nobody has ever seen him as. I really don't understand why.
"Occasionally offers are created but cannot be delivered upon. He earns a good deal of money and hasn't had a deal.
"I really could make the Saunders or Smith fight "
Eubank Jr's unbeaten start to his career
was finished by Saunders, who holds the WBO name.
And Eubank Jr was eliminated in the semi-finals of the World Boxing Super Series last season by George Groves, who then lost his WBA belt to Smith in the final.
Asked if he would approach Eubank Jr having an enquiry, Hearn explained:"Yes, 100 percent. Callum and billy Joe are equally up for this struggle.
"I think Eubank Jr would like to win world titles therefore why not? Eubank Jr is a huge name and a fantastic fighter."
Eubank Jr told Sky Sports earlier this week:"The win over DeGale felt gratifying for several reasons as it proved what I've known all along. Therewas many over me seeing my position in this game, who had some doubts, but I've always believed in myself and that is the way it has always been.
"I see myself as the best fighter in the world and that is because I have to. There can't be no other way.
"I can't go into a fight with the other titles that are about my weight, who desire the exact same as me, and not feel that I'm better than them."
