Former Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa and ex-Burnley boss Sean Dyche have both been linked with the position.
While shock rumours emerged that Allardyce was also in contention.
The 68-year-old previously spent six months in charge of Everton after being appointed boss in November 2017.
Allardyce took over with Everton 13th in the Premier League, and guided the club to an eighth-place finish before leaving at the end of the 2017-18 season.
But the former England manager has confirmed he has not had an approach from the Toffees, who have reportedly been put up for sale by owner Farhad Moshiri.
He told William Hill and Footy Accumulators: "If I was going to Everton, they’d have already rang me.
"I have a lot of respect for Farhad Moshiri and the money he has found for Everton.
"Obviously, they haven’t invested like Newcastle. They have invested in players that haven’t delivered under two different managers.Most read in FootballIS JOSIE OKAY?

"I only bought two when I was there, and I am still proud of my achievement because it was the best of any recent manager.
"They need someone to go over there that can get the team functioning correctly straight away."
Allardyce went on to say that the "right manager" can save the Toffees from relegation.
Everton are currently 19th in the Prem, having won just three league games all season, with fuming fans protesting against the board.
But Allardyce reckons there is enough talent in the squad to avoid the drop again, having done so narrowly last season.
He added: "The right manager can save them, but he will have to shut out all of the surroundings, get their players to put their headphones on and block out the white noise.
"It’s impossible to do it completely with all the media, but they need to focus the first-team players.Read More on The US SunDRAWING A LINE Lawmaker calls for Walmart to limit self-checkout as she slams storesJUST LIKE THE GOAT Brock Purdy is just like Brady, Brent Jones says as he predicts future
"They will have a real battle to get the problems out and keep Everton up, but it can be done with that squad because they are good enough.
"I believe they are good enough."Topics
