Troubled Pompey hope to sign former Southampton and Fulham goalkeeper Niemi, 37, on a free.
England No.1 James, 39, will then be allowed to go, with Sunderland a likely destination.
James will join the Fratton Park exodus of England players, which has seen Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe and Glen Johnson leave this year. They are all keen to cement their World Cup places next summer.
