Baines is currently with the England squad in Rio de Janeiro preparing for Sunday's friendly against Brazil.
And, the full-back admits that he is using his time away with the national side to take his mind off recent events at Goodison Park.
Baines told the Liverpool Echo: "It all sort of seems to be going on at the moment. Roberto Martinez has been linked with the job. He is a terrific manager so we will just have to wait and see.
"Thankfully we are in camp so I am keeping it at the back of my mind for now and concentrating more on England."
The former Wigan player joined Everton in 2007.
