Theo Walcott or Raheem Sterling?

It's fair to say Theo Walcott hasn't had the best season at Arsenal, once again he's faced long spells on the sideline and this is possibly the first time he's really failed to have an impact on the squad when he's returned.
Has Theo passed his best? It's well known he's one of the fastest wingers in the Premier League and at times that's really honestly been his greatest asset. For years he's been telling us he wants his chance up top, that's never going to happen at Arsenal with the likes of Giroud, Wellbeck and Sanchez all way ahead of him. At the moment it's hard to justify starting him before The Ox!
Granted good squads have depth but the depth needs to be at the quality to compete, no point playing for 70 minutes to bring weaker players on.
Anyway my point is, with Raheem Sterling's contract talks at Liverpool stalling surely the end of this season would be a good time to pounce. It's unlikely Liverpool would be interested in selling to us however if we were to use Theo Walcott as somewhat of a bargaining chip then could that sway the outcome? I'd think it were worth a go. You can't argue that Raheem Sterling has more of a chance at 20 of making it now than Theo does, he's tried, tested and although he does have some good moments and games his consistency with performance and continual injuries are just becoming tiresome.
What do you think?
