Club career[edit]

Real Sociedad[edit]

Odriozola with Real Sociedad in 2017

Born in San Sebastián, Basque Country, Odriozola joined Real Sociedad's youth setup in 2006, at the age of ten.[4] On 1 September 2013 he made his senior debut with the reserves, starting in a 3–0 Segunda División B away loss against UD Las Palmas Atlético,[5] and in the same month made the first of several appearances in the UEFA Youth League.[6][7]

Odriozola was definitely promoted to the B-side ahead of the 2014–15 season, and scored his first goal on 6 September 2014 by netting the last in a 3–0 home win against Real Unión.[8] On 25 February 2016, he renewed his contract with Sanse until 2018.[9]

On 16 January 2017, as both Carlos Martínez and Joseba Zaldúa were injured, Odriozola made his first-team – and La Liga – debut by starting in a 2–0 away win against Málaga CF.[10] Up to the end of the campaign, he played in a further 16 competitive matches.[11]

Odriozola renewed his contract until 2022 on 10 June 2017, and was definitively promoted to the senior squad ahead of the 2017–18 season, quickly becoming the first-choice right-back.[12] He scored his first professional goal on 15 February 2018, in the 2–2 draw with FC Red Bull Salzburg in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 at Anoeta Stadium.[13]

Real Madrid[edit]

On 5 July 2018, Real Madrid reached an agreement with Real Sociedad for the transfer of Odriozola.[14][15] The fee was reported to be €30 million, plus €5 million of conditional add-ons.[16] He made his debut on 22 September, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–0 win over RCD Espanyol.[17] Odriozola scored his first league goal on 21 April 2021, scoring the second goal in a 3–0 win over Cádiz.[18]

Loan to Bayern Munich[edit]

After playing just five times for Madrid during the first half of 2019–20.[19] In January 2020, Odriozola was loaned to Bundesliga club Bayern Munich for the remainder of the season.[20][21] On 23 August 2020, he won the 2019–20 UEFA Champions League with Bayern Munich.[22]

Loan to Fiorentina[edit]

On 28 August 2021, Odriozola joined Serie A club Fiorentina on a season-long loan deal.[23][24]

Return to Real Sociedad[edit]

On 1 September 2023, Real Sociedad announced the return of Odriozola on a six-year contract.[25]

International career[edit]

Odriozola was first selected to play for Spain under-21s by Albert Celades, helping the squad reach the final of the 2017 UEFA European Championship. He earned his first full cap for Spain on 6 October 2017, in a 3–0 win over Albania for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers; he played the entire match, and also provided an assist for Thiago Alcântara's goal as the team reached the finals as group winners.[26]

Odriozola was named in the 23-man squad for the finals in Russia.[27] He scored his first goal for his country on 3 June 2018, in a 1–1 friendly draw with Switzerland in Villarreal.[28]
