Everton boss Moyes is the early favourite for the White Hart Lane job afer Redknapp was axed on Thursday morning over Tottenham's failure to finish higher than fourth in the Premier League last season.
The club's former defender told the Sports Bar: "We’ve heard Modric might be leaving to go to Manchester United, obviously there have been rumours about Gareth Bale recently and Van der Vaart, and is he [Moyes] a big enough name internationally to keep these star players at Tottenham? I don’t know.
"A Rafa Benitez might be a name that is good for the players to hear. He has obviously got a good track record, he won the Champions League with Liverpool."
