The France goalkeeper's deal expires in June and he's yet to hear from the board about a new deal.
Conte said, "I just arrived. I've only been here a month. And right now, of course, we have several situations to resolve. Hugo Lloris is the captain of this team. He is the captain of the France team too. We are talking about a world class goalkeeper.
"Today he is very focused, and he knows very well that we are trying to do our best, me as a coach, Hugo as a goalkeeper and all the players have to perform, at a high level. We will have time to talk about him.
"I consider him an important player for Tottenham, for his experience and because he is first and foremost a good goalkeeper."
