Problem is that attacking players will continue to go for higher fees than the defensive players. Gomez and Trent are amazing young talents, but I don't know if they'd go for higher fees than Pulisic --- well they might now that Christian is not the everyday player, but rather sharing with Sancho.Feel it has a lot to do with his nationality as well. Being American the hype tends to shadow you around quite a fair bit. Not that he doesn't have the raw skill or talent, but far from being a player of the price touted in the market - £70m. If that's the way the market is moving towards, then Alexander-Arnold and Gomez would hit 9-figure fee by now.
By the way, on Sancho, I do wonder how he'll continue as the season goes along as teams get more familiar with him.
As for the comparisons to Eden Hazard, no he's definitely not in the same class as Eden Hazard, who is 7.5 years older than Christian and currently one of the finest talents out there. However, Pulisic right now is comparable to the Eden Hazard of 2011 at Lille.
