Pochettino, who began work at White Hart Lane this week, has already drawn up a list of transfer targets and has given them to sporting director Franco Baldini.
And the former Saints boss is apparently a big fan of Alvarez, and will weigh up an £8m move for the 26-year-old in the coming days.
Alvarez has been in good form for Inter recently, but reports in Italy have suggested that he has rejected a new deal with the club and is thinking of moving on this summer.
Spurs are keen to make additions to their midfield area this summer, and with Alvarez able to feature anywhere across the middle Pochettino believes he would represent excellent value for money.
Alvarez will most likely feature prominently for Argentina during the World Cup, and Pochettino will use that as an opportunity to take a closer look before deciding whether to make a concrete offer.
