Clifford Starke has taken the lead in the pursuit to buy the Montreal Alouettes, according to Montreal Gazette reporter Herb Zurkowsky.

Former CFL commissioner and Als president Larry Smith backs Starke as a potential new owner of the franchise. Starke is close with Larry’s son Brad, who played receiver in the CFL for two seasons, and brought him on as a consultant.

Starke is a 35-year-old CEO of Hampstead Private Capital, which appears to be registered in Bermuda.
