Antonio Conte said he does not aim high with his transfer requests and has "rarely been given the players I asked for" after the Chelsea boss was questioned about his January plans.
Chelsea played out an entertaining 2-2 draw at London rivals Arsenal in the Premier League on Wednesday, but the attention soon turned to the transfer window and possible signings.
However, Conte said via Sky Sport Italia: "I do not aim high with my requests, especially as in my history I've rarely been given the players I asked for.
"I always ended up at clubs who were running an austerity programme.
"I just try to do my work. If someone arrives, good, if they don't, then that's fine too. I have to continue my work, either way."
