Here is why Chelsea don't need to sign a midfielder despite Kante's injury

Despite N'Golo Kante's injury, Chelsea don't need to sign a midfielder. Ampadu and Chalobah are two good Chelsea players, no player will sign for a bench role at least not Rice and Tchouameni. Also Chelsea will not want to make the same mistakes again of buying scrubs.

Chalobah is a natural defensive midfielder. He's decent playing as a center back too. Checking his stats as a defensive midfielder for Lorient last season, right up there with Tchoumeni's stats, there isn't much difference.

Gilmour too can play as a midfielder so Chelsea don't need to sign a midfielder but Tuchel may not use him enough to benefit the team. Looking at how many games Gilmour got. He was hardly played last season under Tuchel. Every game was important and so Kante, Kovacic & Jorginho were always preferred which didn't help keep these 3 fresh at all.

It's because of this game time reason, that's why gilmour was sent out on loan to get enough game time this season. And since Chalobah got enough game time last season on loan, he can stay as backup this season while Gilmour is out so Chelsea won't need to sign a midfielder this season.

People are forgetting that Reece James is a very competent DM, with Azpilicueta and Hudson-Odoi kept at wingback, they could use James being used in Kante's position. Well, Kante is irreplaceable anyway, Chelsea better off getting some game time into their other players while he gets better.
