Johnson is on the verge of agreeing terms with Beşiktaş according to Eurosport TR.

The 30-year-old right-back is currently available on a free transfer as Liverpool did not renew his contract.

The former England international has also been linked with a move to the Black Eagles Istanbul rivals Galatasaray according to the Daily Star but the Lions are currently priced at 9.

Beşiktaş are reported to have offered Johnson a deal worth €2.3 million per-season according to HaberTürk.

The Black Eagles were forced to play central midfielders Necip Uysal and Atiba Hutchinson as a fullback to fill the void when first-choice right-back Serdar Kurtuluş was not unavailable last season.

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