Reporter Fabrizio Romano confirmed that the playmaker will remain in Lyon on the day of the deadline.
Arsenal have long been admirers of the French midfielder and made several bids for him last summer, but a move never got off the ground when The Gunners went for Thomas Partey for £45million.
Spurs also inquired with Lyon last week about the availability of their 23-year-old midfielder, who has scored 17 goals for the French club in the past two years.
Aouar scored eight goals last season and provided four assists in 33 appearances for Lyon
Last season, he scored eight goals and provided four assists in 33 games for Ligue 1.
Boateng, meanwhile, arrives in Lyon after having won all the major trophies available to him in Germany following his arrival in 2011.
He won the 2013 and 2020 Champions League, nine Bundesliga titles and five German Cups during his stay in Bavaria.
