The Argentinian was sacked in Spurs in November 2019 after five years of office and has not worked since.
Pochettino was able to join a new club at that time, but they would have been forced to pay Tottenham compensation or negotiate with Spurs president Daniel Levy because the manager was on gardening leave.
As of this Monday – which would have been the day after the planned end of the Premier League – Pochettino, 48, is now free and therefore available for hire, according to The Telegraph.
Pochettino has accomplished great things on a relatively small budget at Spurs, and his services will be in high demand.
Tottenham made a disappointing start to the 2019/20 campaign and was fourteenth when the ax fell on Pochettino.
The Argentinian, who led the Spurs to a first Champions League final in June 2019, was replaced by former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.
“We were extremely reluctant to make this change. This is not a decision the board of directors made lightly or hastily, “said Spurs president Daniel Levy.
“The national results at the end of last season and at the start of this season were extremely disappointing.
“It is up to the board of directors to make the difficult decisions – this was all the more taken in view of the many memorable moments that we had with Mauricio and his team of coaches – but we do it in the best club interest. “
