The 23-year-old striker enjoyed a loan spell at Blackburn last season but has now returned to Perugia.
Hertha have been looking for a new forward all summer and coach Falko Gotz was pleased with the player's performance after his first training session on Tuesday.
''You can tell that he has enjoyed an excellent education,'' declared Gotz.
''Although it's too early to say much about him as it was only the first session.
''But we will test him until the end of the week.''
Previously Bothroyd has been linked with moves to Manchester City and Premiership new boys West Ham United.
