Pochettino guided the Saints to an eighth-placed finish in the Premier League table following his first full season in English football.
Hoddle, who boasts a 14-year association with Spurs as both a player and a manager, believes that the Argentine is the right man to get the best out of the squad at White Hart Lane.
"I think Pochettino is a super young manager," he told talkSPORT. "He has done a brilliant job at Southampton and I think he would be a very good acquisition for Tottenham.
"I've been very impressed with the way he's had Southampton playing this year and I think, with the squad at Tottenham, he could do real wonders there."
Current Ajax coach Frank de Boer is also understood to be in contention for the job.
