Ionization energy and electronegativity follow the same trends on the periodic table, so it doesn't matter which one you use to determine the central atom. It should be the least electronegative and the one with the lowest ionization energy.
ionization energy and electronegativity do follow the same trends so technically you could use either. Using electronegativity makes more sense to me because if something was extremely electronegative it is not likely to want to share a lot of electrons therefore will not be in the middle
