Inter could bid farewell to former academy defender Andreaw Gravillon this summer, according to a report in the Italian media today.

Gravillon joined Ligue 1 side Lorient on a season-long loan last year and has enjoyed an impressive campaign, making 24 appearances for Christophe Pelissier’s side (scoring once). said Lorient intended to make Gravillon’s move permanent at the end of the season, if they manage to avoid relegation from Ligue 1 (they are currently 17th, two points clear of danger).

Gravillon’s loan deal last summer included an option to buy for €4.5 million and it seems Lorient are expected to exercise that option if they remain in France’s top flight.

The 23-year-old had four loan spells in Italy with Benevento, Sassuolo, Pescara and Ascoli after coming through Inter’s youth system as a teenager.

If Lorient do not sign Gravillon permanently he will return to Inter as normal, at which point the parties will decide the best course of action for his future.

Gravillon is under contract with the Nerazzurri until the summer of 2023 and recently described Inter as ‘my second family’.
