However, Conte says the Argentina striker needs to decide if he's willing to make the needed sacrifices to reach the elite level.
He explained: "Lautaro must work, must work and that's it. He shouldn't think that the goal is everything for a striker, because for me it is not like that.
"He must work for the team, he is growing a lot, he is becoming a complete striker. We like when he gives assists and when he's scoring.
"He has a lot to improve, he has important potential, it's up to him to decide if he wants to become a top player or if he wants to stay as a mid-level player."
