Serero sustained a groin injury in a League match against ADO Den Haag in September and there was doubt he would make the Afcon squad.
However, there is a glimmer of hope now.
"I will have to go see how he is doing, but he is back at training… It is not heavy training, though," Bafana coach Gordon Igesund confirms.
"I mentioned Serero, but I could have mentioned six or seven more names; there is Serero, Morgan Gould, Davide Somma, Daylon Claasen, Benni McCarthy, Katlego Mphela… there are so many. Some of these players are just coming back from injury," he says.
However, Igesund has cautioned that no-one is guaranteed a place in his team.
"They've got to now start playing for their teams and on top of that, they must start playing well to be considered. So I have to keep monitoring these players," he adds.
