The Italian side secured a place in the Champions League with a 5-0 win against Norwich at Carrow Road on Sunday.

The 52-year-old Conte is set to speak with chairman Daniel Levy and football’s chief executive Fabio Paratici this week – but he has hinted he could still walk if the club fails to live up to his ambitions, despite having a year left on his contract.

The ex-Chelsea and Inter Milan boss was backed in January to sign Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski, whose £29.2million loans are set to be made permanent.

Centre-back Eric Dier, revived by Conte, said: “The club must seize this moment, this team and this manager.

“It’s in the hands of the club now. We’ve done our job and now it’s the club’s job to get the best out of their work this summer.

“I’m sure they will try to do their best so that we and the manager keep pushing and keep getting better.

Skipper Hugo Lloris, 35, added: “I think Conte knows exactly what he wants and needs.

“I think the trust is huge. It’s all about making decisions together.

“It’s a team win and it will give the club the positivity to prepare for next season.”

Conte would like a new left centre-back as well as a new goalkeeper, with Southampton’s unsigned stopper Fraser Forster likely to join.

Attacking full-back could be targeted, as well as a new midfielder with Leicester’s Youri Tielemans also being considered.

Fringe players like Harry Winks and Joe Rodon could leave.
