The Istanbul giants struggled at right-back last season. Turkish international Serdar Kurtuluş did not have a replacement and Slaven Bilic was forced to play central midfielders Necip Uysal and Atiba Hutchinson as a fullback to fill the void when he was not available.

Johnson joined Liverpool from Portsmouth for £10 million in 2009 and has made 200 appearances for the Reds.
