The 21-year-old playmaker was allowed to head out of Anfield in the summer of 2018 on a season-long agreement.
He was tied to a new five-year contract before a deal was struck that allowed him to form part of an ambitious project being pieced together by Frank Lampard at Pride Park.
He told the Daily Mail: “The main focus this season is to get promoted with Derby.
“But Mason's goal is to play for Chelsea and my goal is to play for Liverpool. I have always felt like a Liverpool player. Everything is going along the right path.”
Wilson has already become the youngest player to represent Wales at senior level when making his bow as a 16-year-old against Belgium in October 2013.
He is now seeing regular football at Derby and has recorded 10 goals and two assists in the Championship this season.
A notable strike was also delivered during a Carabao Cup clash with Manchester United in September, as he crashed home a spectacular free-kick.
Wilson said of that effort, which saw him celebrate by holding five fingers up to the home support in reference to Liverpool’s collection of European Cup triumphs: “I didn't realise the goal at United was as good as it was because I went off celebrating.
“It wasn't until I was on the bus on the way back here that I watched it on Twitter and saw the movement that I had got on it. With it being at Old Trafford made it even more special.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was among those left impressed by an eye-catching outing at Old Trafford and the German has remained in contact with Wilson throughout his time at Derby.
“He dropped me a text to tell me he'd watched it and he was delighted with the performance - and the goal!” Wilson added on his dealings with those back at Anfield.
“A couple of weeks ago there was another message saying, 'Good result, good goal - keep going'. When you get those texts, it is a massive boost. You know you aren't forgotten.”
