The Sunderland Echo claimed in June 2017 that the North London outfit were planning a move for the young Swede last summer.
With Sunderland to play in League One next season after getting relegated from the Championship at the end of the 2017-18 campaign, it is going to be hard for the Black Cats to keep hold of Mbunga-Kimpioka.
If Arsenal make another move for the 18-year-old, then the Black Cats could be forced to cash in on the talented and promising youngster.
Arsenal fans, though, should not expect the 18-year-old to make an immediate impact should he make the move to the Emirates Stadium, as he will need a couple of more years to develop and get to the standard needed to be a success in the Premier League.
