Hello, i would start your new floor with a 6mm plyboard preparation. I would recommend uplifting your old floor before this, this will reflect the best outcome and an all round professional job. Karl.

Hello, i would uplift the old vinyl then if you have a wooden subfloor use marine ply due to a kitchen being a possible wet area then lay the vinyl or if you have a concrete subfloor up lift the old vinyl then use micro coat or feather finish to get rid of the adhesive then lay the new vinyl. If you go over the top 1 you will find the embossed vinyl below will in time show through. 2 the top layer of vinyl will not adhere to the old vinyl with glue and it will allow movement due to the slippery surface.
