Alain Eizmendi Blanco (born 10 June 1990) is a Spanish footballer who plays as a winger for Racing de Ferrol.

Club career
Born in Beasain, Basque Country, Eizmendi joined Real Sociedad's youth system in 2002, aged 12. He made his senior debuts in the 2008–09 season, playing for the reserves in Segunda División B and being relegated; on 20 June 2009 he made his professional debut with the first team, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 2–1 away win against Elche CF for the Segunda División championship.

On 30 June 2011, Eizmendi rejected a contract extension from the Txuri-urdin and signed a two-year deal with neighbouring Athletic Bilbao, being assigned to B-team also in the third level. In his second year he scored a career-best seven goals in 31 matches, as the club failed to promote in the playoffs; on 19 June 2013, he was released.

In July 2013, Eizmendi returned to Real Sociedad, being subsequently loaned to SD Eibar. On 17 July 2014, after achieving promotion to La Liga with the Armeros, he signed a one-year deal with CD Leganés; he renewed his contract with the latter on 9 July of the following year, and achieved another promotion at the end of the season.

Personal life
Eizmendi's twin brother, Eneko, is also a footballer and a midfielder. He too was groomed at Real Sociedad, but spent all of his career in the lower leagues.

Their father, Francisco Javier, and uncle, José Ramón, were also involved in the sport.
