The News of the World carried a story over the weekend quoting Arca as saying he was alone and hated the weather in the North-East.
However, Arca refutes the story and insists the report could not be further from the truth.
He said: "I got a phone call from a friend telling me about this story and I was very upset. It is all made up.
"I find the story insulting and it's also insulting to my family and the people of Sunderland. It makes my name look bad.
"I'm very unhappy at what was written and I'm considering taking this further. This kind of thing should not happen.
"What was written in the paper was made up and stupid. I've no idea where they have got this from.
"I just want to say that I'm happy at Sunderland and I like living here. I have had a great time since I came to England.
"The story is just untrue and I just want to get through to the fans that I do not have any problems living up here and playing for Sunderland.
"It is very important to me to know that the fans get the message that I love the club and I love them and that this article is not true."
