Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has acknowledged that the club are exploring options in the ongoing transfer window.
James picked up a hamstring damage in December, and he could be out for action for the best part of two-and-a-half months.
Meanwhile, Chilwell failed to recover from a knee ligament injury. He has been ruled out for the campaign after an operation.
The Blues are looking to sign replacements this month, and Tuchel has confirmed that the club are looking at all possibilities.
The Frenchman is keen on making the switch to Stamford Bridge. The Blues will need to agree to the Toffees’ £25m valuation for his services.
