Shanghai SIPG manager Vitor Pereira has ruled himself out of the race to succeed compatriot Marco Silva as the Everton manager.
This is according to the publication from the Liverpool Echo which revealed that the Portuguese manager wants to stay at Chinese Super League (CSL) outfit Shanghai SIPG rather than take the Everton job.
Vitor Pereira has also been linked with the vacant managerial job at Arsenal with latest reports claiming that the Gunners have made an offer for him.
Arsenal and Everton are the only two Premier League clubs without a permanent manager at the moment.

The Gunners sacked Unai Emery last month and replaced him with club legend Freddie Ljungberg on a temporary basis.
For Everton, former club striker Duncan Ferguson has been made the interim manager at Goodison Park following the dismissal of former manager Marco Silva earlier this month.
Marco Silva lost his job as the Everton manager after the Toffees dropped into the bottom three on the Premier League table.
Interim manager Duncan Ferguson was able to mastermind their escape from the relegation zone last weekend with the 3-1 win over Chelsea.
Everton have already confirmed that Duncan Ferguson will continue in his role as the interim manager for the Manchester United game this weekend as the search for a permanent manager goes on.
