Benjamin Gavanon (born 9 August 1980) is a French professional football (soccer) player, currently with Amiens SC.

Born in a suburb of Marseille, Gavanon started his career at his local club, Olympique de Marseille. However, Gavanon found it difficult to break into the Marseille first team, and played a total of seven minutes in six years as a professional at the club.

At the end of his time at Marseille, Gavanon spent a spell on loan at English club Nottingham Forest, then in the second tier of English football. However, Gavanon failed to break into the Forest first team and returned to France.

On his return, in the summer of 2003, Gavanon found himself unwanted, and his contract was terminated. He then signed a two year contract with Ligue 2 club Nancy, and after impressing, earned himself a two year extension, keeping him at the club until 2007.

After Nancy's promotion in 2005, Gavanon began to struggle with Ligue 1 football, but worked hard to regain his place towards the end of the season. He is now considered a regular as Nancy continue in the top flight.
