Conte hammered the Croatia midfielder after Saturday's preseason defeat to Manchester United.
"I do not think Perisic fits into the role I request, so right now the attack is the only place he can play in," said Conte referring to the wing-back role.
"There are roles to respect and one cannot change a player's qualities. The feeling I get is negative, so I don't think he can give the team what it needs."
West Ham and Arsenal were linked with Perisic at the beginning of this summer market.
