Born in the Basque city of Donostia, Gorka Guruzeta always had a special gift for playing football. He spent his youth career at famous academy, Antiguoko, and many expected him to join Real Sociedad after graduation. However, the forward signed with Athletic’s feeder club, CD Basconia, in 2014 where he immediately stood out for his ability to score goals. He was promoted to Bilbao Athletic in 2016 and led the team in scoring during the 2017/2018 season. After signing a new four-year contract with the Lions, Guruzeta was called up to spend the preseason training with the first team and was then officially promoted. He made his debut at the San Mamés on 27 August in a 2-2 draw against Huesca.
Gorka Guruzeta is under contract through 2021 with an undisclosed release clause.
