Scottish outfit Kilmarnock have turned down a bid from African giants for star striker .

Coulibaly, 22, has been in scorshing form this season for the East Ayrshire club after his exploits, most recently scoring a wonder-goal from just after the midway line against Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.

It is no surprise that the 2011 GloCAF Most Promising Talent of the Year has attracted lots of interest with Zamalek keen on signing the Ivorian.

A source inside Kilmarnock confirmed to KingFut the submission of a £500,000 bid from Zamalek, after the latter had given authorization to a Scottish agent to negotiate terms with the club.

However, Kilmarnock remain firm on their $1,000,000 valuation for the player if they were to part ways with him, a value which Zamalek confirmed they would not be able to match.

British reports had claimed that Zamalek’s arch rivals Al Ahly were also interested in Coulibaly, however KingFut can confirm that the Red Devils are not interested in entering a bidding war with Zamalek for the former Ivory Coast U17 forward.

Coulibaly has scored 11 goals for Kilmarnock in all competitions this season and is the leading goalscorer of the team.

The forward broke onto the scene in the 2011 U17 FIFA World Cup in Mexico scoring a record nine goals in four games as Ivory Coast crashed out of the competition in the round of 16, including a hattrick against Marquinhos’ Brazil and a Poker against Denmark in the group stages.

The player’s career came to a halt after unsuccessful spells at Tottenham Hotspurs, Italian clubs Pitsoiese & Bary as well as English outfits Peterborough and Newport County.

Souleymane Coulibaly found his feet again at Kilmarnock after joining the club last summer.
