Stainless steel chimney lining.

Total flue sweep and reline with metal chimney liner. Aluminum of natural gas furnace, stainless steel if a boiler system.
And once installed, patch the hole in the wall with masonry.

Never use aluminum liner if there was ever an oil or coal furnace attached to this chimney. The acids embedded in the flue will rot aluminum from outside, in. Go with stainless. No worries!
