After leading Spurs to an unprecedented UEFA Champions League final where they finished runners-up, the Argentine resigned his position as manager of the club in the summer of 2019.
Former Newcastle defender Warren Barton has claimed that the manager who is currently a free agent is the best man to replace Newcastle manager Steve Bruce.
It is believed that there will be an entire team overhaul as soon as the Saudi-backed consortium completes a takeover of the Magpies and the current manager might be affected.
PCP Capital Partners are closing in on their £300m purchase from the much-maligned current owner Mike Ashley.
“With all due respect to Steve, and I’ve got a lot of respect for him, he’s not one of the top-level coaches around the world,” Barton told talkSPORT 2.
“He’s always done reasonably well in the Premier League and Championship, but if you want someone to take you to that next level, I think Pochettino would tick all the boxes.
“He’s ambitious, he’s great with young players, he understands the Premier League and I think he’s got a chip on his shoulder now to come back and prove people wrong.
“I think he is ready-made for the club, and his hunger to be successful will go right the way through the club and the fans.
” Furthermore, Newcastle United are reportedly shopping form players ahead of next season with PSG forward Edinson Cavani and Napoli striker Dries Mertens on the radar.
