Jérémy Taravel began his career as a professional footballer at the second team of Lille after working his way up from the youth academy. A loan spell at Troyes AC in 2008 was unsuccessful as he didn't manage a single appearance but the next year, on the 2nd of January 2009, he moved on loan to S.V. Zulte Waregem. After a very good loan spell in which the defender was consistently a starter in the first team, the Belgians exercised their buy option included in the loan deal and so signed him of a permanent basis from Lille.
On the 24th of June 2010, K.S.C. Lokeren Oost-Vlaanderen signed the French central defender from S.V. Zulte Waregem on a three year contract. Over the next three and a half years at Lokeren, the central defender amassed 125 appearances and scored 25 goals and became one of the highest regarded defenders in the league.
His consistent good performances over an extended period of time at Lokeren persuaded Croatian giants Dinamo Zagreb to splash £1.5m for his transfer in January 2014. The defender made just one appearance for Dinamo Zagreb that season, in a 2-1 home win over RNK Split as he injured ligaments in his knee in training and was required to sit the rest of the season out.
