Paul Jewell left the Suffolk club by mutual consent on Wednesday after a torrid run, and Ipswich are without a win in 11 games in all competitions. They sit bottom of the Championship, four points from safety.
Several names have been linked with the position, with Mick McCarthy and Alan Curbishley in particular amongst the bookmakers' favourites.
But striker Chopra, who played alongside Shearer at Newcastle for four years, has a firm opinion of who should get the job, taking to Twitter to voice his thoughts.
"I would love to see Alan Shearer as manager such a good person and worked, played under some great managers including Sir Bobby Robson," Chopra tweeted.
Shearer has only had one previous job in management, winning one of his eight games in charge of Newcastle as they were relegated from the Premier League in 2009.
