The 27-year-old has been handed the trial by Citizens boss Kevin Keegan, who will then judge whether to make a move for him or not.
Bedrossian has played just three games this season for Lorient and, with his contract at the club expiring in the summer, is desperately looking for alternatives.
A move to Maine Road could be a dream switch for the attacking midfielder, especially if Keegan achieves his aim of bringing Premiership football back to the blue half of Manchester.
City would only have to pay Lorient a sum of around £300,000 (é¼460,000) for Bedrossian if they decide to sign him.
Keegan, meanwhile has handed one-year contracts to five City youngsters, Terry Dunfield, Chris Shuker, Tyrone Mears, Joey Barton and Stephen Jordan.
"One of the big things I have to look at is the size of the squad and the positions and at the moment we have not been forthcoming with anything except one-year deals for the kids," said Keegan.
"What I decided, along with Dennis Tueart and the chairman, was that the young players all deserve another year to see how they can progress.
"The only player we tried to tie up for longer than a year was Dickson Etuhu and that didn't work out. I would like them all to sign and my feeling is that they will."
