Medjani has linked up with the Ligue 2 side after being left out of The Reds' pre-season trip to America.
The teenage centre half joined Liverpool last summer on a free transfer from St Etienne, after previously being a target for Manchester United, Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Juventus.
He was brought to Anfield by Gerard Houllier but did not feature in the first team under the ex-Reds boss.
New manager Rafa Benitez checked out the former France Under-18 captain in the recent friendly against Wrexham.
But Benitez appears to be willing to sanction a temporary departure for Medjani to enable the defender to accrue first team experience.
If Medjani proves himself in training with Lorient, it is possible a season-long loan deal could be set up for the highly-rated stopper.
