Applying vinyl flooring to plank flooring?

Hi, I have bought a 1930s house with a carpeted bathroom. the flooring underneath is plank wood. Can I apply plywood as additional sob flooring before applying vinyl, laminate tiling?

1/4 " underlayment plywood should be used under vinyl. It needs to be stapled every 4 to 6" in the field and every 2-4" on the edges.
