The visit of Charlton to Stamford Bridge is the last before Carlo Cudicini starts a three-match suspension.
With Bosnich no longer in the frame following his positive drug test for cocaine, Ranieri has just Ed de Goey as experienced goalkeeping cover.
The genial Italian has revealed that he may make a raid on the transfer market as a stop-gap measure.
He said: "I have Evans who is a very good young keeper but I would like another keeper with experience.
"So we will look for someone like this for a month's loan and if there is someone, I think the chairman would be happy to bring them.
"But if there is someone experienced who is not as good as the young keepers here, then I will go with Evans. As you know, I like to go with the young players."
Bosnich, meanwhile, has decided to fight the FA`s misconduct charge for cocaine.
The Australian was charged on December 27, and his legal team contacted the FA shortly before the 14-day deadline was due to expire.
FA spokesman Adrian Bevington said: "I can confirm that Mark Bosnich's legal team have responded and they are contesting the charge."
In other news, Ranieri says he has been inundated with potential signings, but so far no team have tried to buy any of his squad.
Ranieri continued: "I have been sent many faxes from all over the world with the name of players - from Japan, China, everywhere!
"Everybody wants to sell me players but so far no-one has knocked asking for anyone.
"But anyway, I am happy with the players I have. I want to give them the chance to take Chelsea into the Champions League."
