But he believes Manchester United are still favourites to make the top four with Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.

‘For sure (we need to strengthen),’ Conte said. ‘After only two weeks I said we needed to improve the quality of this squad.

‘I was sure after seven to 10 days about this. Then I had to make the evaluation over who I can count on and who I can’t.

‘The gap is very large and we need to work a lot and try to improve our squad.’

Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, who has scored 15 goals in 17 games in Serie A, is one of the players on Conte’s radar.

On the future of club captain Lloris, 35, who is out of contract with Spurs in the summer, Conte said: ‘For sure he will talk with the club to try to find a solution. I think Hugo wants to stay, he loves the club.’
