After helping the Spanish side win the Europa League in his first season at the club, the centre-back inevitably emerged as a target for bigger teams.
Although the Frenchman has previously spoken about speculation regarding City, the 22-year-old has reiterated that he was happy to remain in Seville.
However, Kounde has now revealed that he would have welcomed the opportunity to move to City after a conversation with manager Pep Guardiola.
Speaking to Canal Football Club, he said: "Yes, I spoke with Pep Guardiola. I got it on the phone. We talked in Spanish. It went well.
"I was interested in going there. I had guarantees to play, but that did not happen."
