Buendia was said to be on the list of targets for Arsenal this summer. Mikel Arteta is keen on adding creativity to the squad. The Norwich star, then, was one of a number of players he was keen on.

However, the Gunners have faltered in their bid to land Buendia and Villa have beaten them to the punch. And in true football fan fashion, Villa fans have been absolutely loving rubbing it in.

Villa fans mock Arsenal supporters on Twitter over Buendia deal

Twitter is a brilliant place at times. And when deals like this go down, you can guarantee there’ll be some good banter flying about.

The Buendia deal is no exception either, with plenty of Villa fans taking time out to rub it into an Arsenal fanbase who seemed to think Buendia was all but a done deal.

Further, Villa fans seem to find it hilarious that Arsenal supporters think they can sign Jack Grealish. Given that he’ll cost over £100m, it’s safe to say those Villa fans are right to have a giggle.

Here, then, is what some Villa fans had to say as they beat Arsenal to the signing of Norwich midfielder Emi Buendia.
