Anatolia isn't centrally located either. The Anatolian model has a
westward expansion into Europe, that only then spreads out vaguely

The nearest to centrifugal expansion from Anatolia are the slight
eastward movement of Hittite and, if real, the southward movement of
one IE group into Sumer before the advent of writing.
