Jules Kounde of Sevilla has admitted to having a difficult summer after missing out on a transfer to Chelsea.

Chelsea made a £43 million bid for the French defender in the last week of the transfer window, but Sevilla turned it down, claiming that they wanted £68 million.

“We all know how tough the summer was,” Kounde said ahead of Sevilla's Champions League match against Wolfsburg. “I wouldn't call it difficult. However, that is no longer the case.

“I'm completely focused on the team. The most essential performance is on the field. The team depends on me, and I rely on the team to give my all, which I try to do.

“I'm satisfied with the team's accomplishments and my own personal efforts so far, even if I can still grow and go better than last season.”

According to reports in Spain, Kounde was so enraged by the failure of his Chelsea transfer that he refused to take calls from director of football Monchi or his boss Julen Lopetegui.
