Iñigo Córdoba Querejeta (born 12 March 1997) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a left winger for La Liga club Deportivo Alavés, on loan from Athletic Bilbao.

Born in Bilbao, Biscay, Basque Country, Córdoba joined Athletic Bilbao’s youth setup in 2009, aged 12. He made his debuts as a senior with the farm team in the 2014–15 campaign, in Tercera División.

In summer 2015, Córdoba spent the whole pre-season with the reserves, newly promoted to Segunda División. On 12 September of that year he made his professional debut aged 18, coming on as a late substitute for Aitor Seguín in a 0–1 away loss against Real Valladolid; he started seven of his 21 appearances in the second tier, and remained with the B-team after their relegation at the end of the season.

After a year as a regular starter in the third level, Córdoba signed a new contract until 2021, and was invited to train with the senior side in the 2017 pre-season. He made his first team – and La Liga – debut on 20 August, replacing Mikel Balenziaga in a 0–0 home draw against Getafe CF. He scored his first goal in a domestic league fixture away to Villarreal CF on 9 April 2018, the opener in a 3–1 victory for his team. Before the end of the season he signed an extension to his contract, including a buyout clause of upwards of €30 million, running until June 2022.

On 1 February 2021, Córdoba joined Deportivo Alavés on loan for the remainder of the 2020–21 season.
