I strongly suspect that there's a "better way" to do this, but I
have done similar things by using guide lines.  This makes dragging
layers into position a snap - quite literally, the edge of the layer
snap to the guidelines.

Doing control-a followed by Image > Guides > Selection to guides,
will make the edges of the image canvas "sticky".

Doing Image > Guides > New guide by percent, twice with appropriate
values selected in the dialog, will put horizontal and vertical
guides across the center of the image.

That's not exactly responsive to your problem - click and drag is
still required - but until a better answer comes along it might help.
