WIth Tim Sherwood set to be sacked at the end of the season from his 18-month contract, Glenn Hoddle believes Spurs are already on the hunt for a new manager, and they could well be looking overseas.
Sherwood took over from Andre Villas-Boas in December, but seemingly hasn't impressed Daniel Levy enough to see out the remainder of his deal.
Sherwood has admitted his future is uncertain, and Hoddle expects the club to seek a new boss from abroad.
Spurs have been linked with Mauricio Pochettino, Louis van Gaal and Frank de Boer, and Hoddle believes Levy's search for a new man will be widespread.
"I do believe that they'll bring someone in and I think they'll be working behind the scenes [to find a replacement]," Hoddle is quoted as saying on FourFourTwo.
"If Tim was going to keep the job they'd have come out and backed him. I think they'll go foreign."
Van Gaal did appear to be top of Tottenham's wish-list, but Hoddle feels the Dutchman will be more tempted to take over at Manchester United.
"I think on their radar was Van Gaal, but the Manchester United job has now become available and I that could appeal to him," he said.
The Spurs legend also reiterated the fact that he put his own name forward to take over when the club dispensed with the services of Villas-Boas.
He said: "Well I did speak to Tottenham, they asked for advice and I gave it to them. I said if you want me to take over until the end of the season I'd do that. That club is in my DNA, so I'd definitely look at that [if offered the job]."
