RWM is one position that isn't locked down by a solid 1st team player.
Serhat may be gone after this year. Mehmet is hot and cold (although he has the potential to be awesome). Kemal keeps getting injured (and is likely to play more in the middle than on the wing).
So Ilgar is in a good position to start getting some minutes in the near future.
He'll have a hard time finding a spot as an attacking midfielder as long as Alex is around, so I guess Daum is trying to find an alternative position for him to play in just incase he proves himself worthy of first team football earlier than anticipated..
And as yenibey has already stated, our right wing has been a weak spot for the side recently, so that's not necessarily a bad thing for Ilgar
