"It is very important to improve our squad", he said.
Morata scored 20 goals for Real Madrid last season, though the bulk of those came as a substitute as he failed to regularly start up front for Zinedine Zidane's side.
And, with the extra burden of a Champions League campaign on their hands, Conte is adamant he does not have enough resource in his squad. "I don't know what my decision will be but he is a really good player and a good person".
"The player was sorry about this situation".
This is why Conte and Chelsea have been so intent on signing Alex Sandro over a player like Ryan Bertrand.
"Am I a patient man?"
Following last September's 3-0 loss at the Emirates Stadium, the Italian switched to a 3-4-3 formation and the Blues won 13 successive Premier League games. "Otherwise the number is always less and we are in trouble".
Sunday's match at Wembley is regarded as a charity friendly, but most likely Wenger and Conte will expect their teams to give their best and start the new campaign strong.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will use hard work and the transfer window to make sure he avoids getting sacked in the same way Jose Mourinho did in 2015. It's an impressive amount of money, £200million.
"You have to ask the club about this", he said, looking distinctly unimpressed.
"In England, the pressure is high and you have to live with that pressure. If PSG is able to do this, why not?"
The Italian gaffer left the 28-year-old Serbia international at home while the rest of his senior squad flew out to China for a pre-season tour, but a line has now been drawn under the brief saga with the 48-year-old's reply. Recently returned from an extended break, Sanchez is fit for the Chelsea showdown. Conte said. "We have a small squad..." Everyone can see the situation, not because the coach shouts 'I want this and this'. This is the first trophy in this season. Conte moved on to Stamford Bridge during that summer, but the winger was clearly still on his mind. If I had to buy one striker I would go to Kane. "We have to wait".
Chelsea have also seen some of their squad players depart the club this summer, giving even more reason to bring in new life to the team. I put it on myself. He's one of the top strikers in the world. "I have to thank my players for this".
